what made you decide to put a new piston in at 10 000km?

Im on about 9 300km and she still purrs like a kitten.

curiosity?beer?maintainance? i noticed also when i put my hand over the end of the pipe a popping kinda effect coming from airbox...sound familiar to anyone.took speedo off at 10000k so was bit over that..

no worries, my speedo stopped working at 6k
