Just done the piston on mine because it started to smoke a bit
I noticed when I took the exhaust off that the valve stem oil seal was leaking
so decided to do a top end rebuild the piston and rings are like new onl a bit of wear to the piston skirt could of easy done another 200 hrs

I found mine were on the tight side , but with using a micrometer and measuring against tolerances found that i swapped a couple around and all was good , i picked some 275's up from a local shop just in case wouldnt use them anyway as they were 0.5mm less in diameter and didnt like the idea of a shim slopping about in the seat !
