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

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

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

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

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

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

greasemonkeypol: strongly agree

dekonfrost7: Thanks quick and to the point.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

Jeff Slavens: Quality Vertex rings don't snap.
