Great job, your luck you still have riding weather. Getting very hit and miss here in Michigan. I was disappointed I wasted one of maybe a handful of riding days Sunday when I drove to get the engine. But that turned into joy when I tore down it down.

Get that machine out and ride it like you stole it.

Yeah the good riding weather is coming soon. Down here summer we're shut ins and most of fall/spring we get to RIDE. :woohoo:
Too bad the Slow Birds have to come down here to screw it up.
You scored on that engine. Those look like the early Wiseco K1015 pistons. They don't make them anymore but the new rings will fit.
I have three good ones in case you need one. Nothing wrong with the old style. B)

Thanks Steve, when I get home later today I’ll post pictures of the pistons. I noticed material missing above the wrist pin bore. If you’d look for me and let me know if they are good or junk. It’s missing material above the wrist pin bore and the lower oil ring. Not sure how that would happen everything was in its place.

Decided to dive into it. 2" may be too far. I could drill holes at 1" over and 2" to compare. I'll do that today. B)
