There are overbore pistons on eBay most all of the time. Cheap.

1st "real" bike I ever owned (not including mini-bikes etc...). I can't tell you how many times I dropped it only to pick it up and keep right on riding.

Great little bike that just ran forever.

Good luck!

Awesome, just got off the phone with the guy that has the other bike and its a go to get it saturday. Its a long drive to go get it, but it will be worth it for the parts. The owner said it just needs rings and a chain to get it going again, but i only want it for parts.

One of the first bikes I worked on as an Apprentice...

The Low reduction Gear Set "T Bar" is great. The Crank Induction. Is a great talking piont.
Look don't oversize to any more than you need. Oh, measure your end gap in the Ring down at the Port in the Barrel. This is where swell happens not the top.
Keep things gentle and small, ok? These are not Hot Rods! You Heat it it WILL Break. Stock they run around farms for 30 years. That Low Gear will Pull you up any Hills a same age 250cc won't. Gearing! Over size will give nothing!! Porting will,Tons! Been there done that x 2000 times. I love em! Lots of Snoozey stuff on the Net to buy. Watch your Rubbers on the Induction. Have fun they are a GREAT BIKE. Jim. ?

Yea, im trying to avoid having to bore it out. The guy says the piston and cylinder are good on the other bike, and if so i may use them with new rings. My cylinder has some scoring on the bottom bit under the ports. Im not going to port it or mess with any of that stuff, just going to get it going again.

Im going to use it around town and on the farm, no major or hard use.

Thumb Good one Bandit!

[FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']Yeah that's the way Mate. These lil Wounders will run and run and run and run. BUT if it sucks air on Induction Your Motor will run like crap. More than that it will trick you! Listen Mate just a Thought that’s possibly Piston Slap (the skirt slaps the bore) those marks under the port? Just check the little end bearing (in Piston) and the Big End (on Crank). All you have to do is see if the Piston Rocks sideways and also any movement up and down? Jam the Fly Wheel to check the latter. Are those Marks Blue in the Bore? If so, again poor Induction, or Bad Pipe (you have to clean them you know)? Or no oil, or Flogged-I've seen these Pull Fire Wood so I doubt it? I love this good on-yu. You will have fun. I wish I lived nearby. I'd love to Ride one again. Yeah 30 odd years and 40kilos on...

What's that chocolate mocha in the cases? If that's emulsified water and oil, you really REALLY need to tear down the bottom end and at least get it cleaned up. There is really no need to be scared of splitting the cases.

I got the other one today. What a mess it is. The electrical system is screwed and the engine is stuck. Doesn't matter anyway, im stripping it for parts. Opened that little cover for the carb and there was a carb in there, so im a happy person.

Ok, ive been thinking of something. I now have another whole frame, so why not play with it. Maybe fit a 5hp Briggs engine in it? Get the kind that has a normal carb and not the in tank one. Use the bikes fuel tank to feed it. Have a go-cart type clutch on it so it would just be twist and go. My sisters kids want something other than the chinese 4-wheelers to ride, so im thinking that may be a cool ride for them.

You will be spending a fair bit of time on that nice carpet making lots of Grease Marks...Lols! I got an old RD 250 going for a Young Buck lived across the road he was about 13yo at the time. He is now a Dad Married a lovely wife and one of my Best Friends... about 30 years latter! Oh and has Rode Bikes all his life. About to buy a Rocket Classic3 Triumph for him and his Misses. Oh sorry I've been away. I've gotten wrapped up in SKYPE with the Girlfriend! She looks a lot sweeter than you! Cheers Bandit. Jim.

No more working in the living room. Ive got a large shop anyway, only reason it was inside was so i could watch a movie while doing a little chrome polishing. Wife was off that weekend.

Its back up on the table and ive starting on cleaning up the parts. Going to take the 2 cylinders and pistons down to the local machine shop that i know the owner and see what he says can be done for them. He should be able to find me a piston and rings if needed.

What I'd like to know is what was my cat "Moose" doing over at your house sitting on your motorcycle? Usually he's on my BMW
