How To Install 2 Stroke Piston Rings




What do you think about this video?

David Olenick: Mine broke. Do you install the piston from the top of the jug or the bottom? Thanks´╗┐

Jeff Slavens: The demo is with KTM 2 stroke rings.

k0ent: thats one soft piston ring :0 usually they snap right away when you try to do what you just demonstrated at the end of the video

Jeff Slavens: The video is about 2 strokes and they don't have oil rings.

eamh2002: Do they only snap when they are cheap or used already? I just went and tried this with my old piston, I can snap my rings to 4pieces like they're made of glass :D Well, it's a taiwanese 40euros/50dollars~ cast alloy piston and not a ProX or Wiseco or such.

austin howell: what if you dont have the pin thing on the cylinder? i have a pocket rocket and it spins freely

Jeff Slavens: Sorry. I will not be making any bottom-end rebuild videos.

greasemonkeypol: strongly agree

eroc2689: i snapped a ring today doing much less twisting than that lol

blinginlike3p0: because its a four stroke. two strokes need them.

Jeff Slavens: Quality Vertex rings don't snap.

David Hoffeld: don.t do this with cast rings 4 strokes,cast rings go snap

Bwil415: If it is a two stroke, the ends of the ring will expand into a port when it heats up and ruin just about everything

dekonfrost7: Thanks quick and to the point.

TheOfficialKC: What pistons do you recommend for older, ~2000, KTMs? OEM, Vertex, Wiseco, Wossner, Pro-X?

budubum: @slaverace1 iv read that vertex rings are manufactured from a comany in Japan. is this true?

marek0086: @eamh2002~ different metal.

Bwil415: I had done this the same way until recently when I read A. Graham Bell's 2T book in which he directly advises against this, even with non iron rings. He explains that the smallest warp in a two stroke ring can lead to uneven ring seal and quicker wear on the rings and cylinder

mbcyclery: i've snapped oil rings on removal quite a few times though....

thelambodudes: Tnx, u make it e z

Kevin Stewart: @slaverace1 Thanks for uploading this,your info is great,any chances of a bottom end rebuild how to?I could do it with the manual but its always better to see it done first,my 03 250 sx is in dire need of a rebuild,gases plugs like hell and I changed the jets but still gassing plugs.
