if you want to do something real fun you just get a dremel(or similar tool) and cut off 1/4 of the piston problem solved. Oh and take pics and make a vid

Okay, since the holidays are outta the way I have managed to get back on this project. I ended up cutting the piston in half and was able to save the clips, but now the root of the problem: The pin is literally seized to the connecting rod! I have lubed it, hammered it, tried twisting it to no avail. I dont need to save the pin because I have a new one, but dont see how cutting it would remove the piece from inside the con. rod. Anyone have any advice? I need to get this little thing outta the garage so I can move onto my other 2 projects! I will put up some pictures after lunch

This probably isn't what Flyin' Duc wants to hear, but if you put that thing in the back of a truck and brought it to him he'd get you all fixed up....he does it for me all the time when I have a "small" issue holding up a bigger project.

Very awsome! Glad you got it done, I was thinking of this thread when I was rebuilding the top end on a DR400

sweet deal! I think you and i are in the same boat when it comes to finding time with projects. But when you finally get something significant done it feels good.

Time to reward yourself with a beer.

If the rebuild doesn't hold up, buy a replacement china motor....you can probably get one on Harwin in the $150 range that will last a few years. And you can go big for free (70cc, 90cc, 110cc).

^ I was thinking about this, hopefully the motor holds up, from what I understand it only had very little hours on it when we got it. If my brother in law would have checked the oil we never would have had to tear it down. I've been riding my 50 with a stock motor for 3 years with no problems. I run synthetic and only have adjusted valves 1 time, runs like a champ
