The cases are split and the results of the failure are in. Cracked piston and scratches and almost 3/16 " of play in the rod. It also turns out that the top end was botched together with some strange sleeve that had the ports misaligned. No wonder it would barely break 130 KPH. Sooooooooooooo we're gonna bung on a new piston, rod, crank bearings, seals etc. Plus Ball is breaking out the Dremel tool for some magic on the ports. The new motor should be pumping out a....hold on to your seats...a manly 20 HP. I know Snail will be quivering in his tennies and won't be able to sleep for fear of the NSR reborn and its newfound 4 1/2 HP.

Do you mind holding the piston a little higher, I am sure the girl in the newspaper photo is about to pop out of her top.
I think this is a much better angle to look at the pic from 
I've got a piston somewhere from my CR80 I had 20 years ago, melted a hole the size of a cigar clean through the top of it racing a KX125.

No its not, you are still holding the piston up too high, blocking too much of the poo yings left booby
