Mine started to puff a bit jt, there was a few hours on it lol! so thought it was time for a piston/rings & check.
Dropped it into Ray Cowles in Pontypool with a piston kit & valve stem seals job done cheers
Was told the piston was fine, but while its apart I would change the piston & seals too.

A no 2 is bigger by 0 .002 mm usually a bike will come with a no 1 and as the cylinder wears you can pit a no 2 piston in it but some bikes have a no 2 on them from the factory it is stamped on the barrel 1 or 2 or it could be a or b

If compression is good I would say it will be valve guide seals. If piston is relatively newish just measure piston and rings for any wear...

You will need valve spring compressor, valve grinding past and new valve stem seals. When grinding in valves use just the lightest of touches..

Very Happy
I expect my old man will have all that gear, i'll have to go on the scrounge lol!
I'll have a look when its apart to see what's needed

Thing is if you fit a all new top end all that extra compression may blow the old crank through the sump Laughing
