The new OEM valves and gaskets came today, as did the thread-in hand-guard inserts and the H4-HID lamp/ballast for the headlight.

As JDL said, Promoto Billet/Fastway.

There are several companies that make Nylon ones too.

Oh, and I cheated.

Those are YZ250F parts shown there......

Don't those springs look a little small to you.....?

If the piston really is that small, then odds on the cylinder is gonna be oversize (and you've already noted the marks where the rings stop at TDC & BDC) so a hone will do nothing to improve the clearance issue, and you need a re-plate and hone back into service limits


All of the cross hatching is still visible, everywhere.

OK, the wrong valve springs came, so while I wait for those, it's time to re-grease the pivoty-stuff....

Any tricks to getting out the swing arm axle that goes thru the frame? Mine would not budge and I did not want to ruin the threads on the end.
Thanks.

If you have never removed it before, it might be tough to get out, with all that corrosion.
I always re-grease everything when I buy it, new or used, so I don't usually have a problem.

Unfortunately, brute force and a torch might be your only solution.
Double nut the end of the swingarm axle before pounding on it.

Also, using a good penetrating oil the night before removal might help loosen things up. I prefer PB Blaster.

Oh yeah, that stuff is good. Don't get it on paint or your hands. It will melt a finger....

Well, not good news.
The oil that was drained from the crankcase was highly contiminated, very low on oil, and full of metal...........

We got less than 17oz of oil from the motor........

This would explain A LOT about the pre-mature wear of the piston, the near-siezing of the wrist pin, and the very stiff shifting.

Hopefully , the crank, shift drum and shift forks are not in too bad of shape.

Ooooh, the 2007 YZ suspension is now installed. Re-sprung (6.4/.49) and re-valved (AS Racing).

The skid plate was removed so the timing chain could be accessed, and replaced; then the motor goes back together.

YZ fork with the very trick triple clamps!

Diverse Racing rear spring

Oh, and the part I kind of forgot about since I bought the bike: Tagasako Excel Pro hubs, and Exel HD spokes, front and rear (they need a bath, huh...)
