The engine is back together with the blaster piston and all works.  :)

Thanks Sleepy, as you say the intake timing is controlled by the reed so windows in the piston shouldn't be an issue.
The piston he has already bought is a Pro-x so will bore it suit and see what happens.
Worst case is will have to buy the another piston and top end gaskets.

General Discussion / DT 200R Piston question
« on: July 01, 2020, 02:00:28 PM »
I'm helping a friend rebuild a 1990 Yamaha DT 200R.
It has a case reed engine, so the stock piston has no windows in the intake side.
The replacement aftermarket piston he has lists as being suitable for a 200 blaster (air cooled) and a DT 200R (water cooled). This piston has intake windows.
Want to make sure it will work before going down the path of rebore etc.
Any advice or suggestions?

I've never ridden an eBike but looks like could be a bit of fun , a quick search indicates that they are a quite a bit more than $2500 though.

Here we are, the middle of 2016 already. And 12 years since I started OzVMX, Who'd have thunk?

Weren't you also involved in the Petshop VMX site prior to Ozvmx all those years ago?

Thanks oldyzman, I did use Blue Chrome many years ago for a small chrome job. From memory it was a bit pricey, but the result was beyond expectation. I'll check them out again.

Tech Talk / 2 stroke vs 4 stroke big end size
« on: April 29, 2016, 03:15:23 PM »
Maybe a silly question, but why do 4 strokes have much larger big ends/crank pins than equivalent capacity/horsepower 2 stroke big end. I think Husky's might be the exception.

74-77 OEM rods/kits are hard to come by, anyone know of an alternative that doesn't require too much machining to fit ?
