Update:

So new plug , the working when last run carb set to standard
and will not start still. Sparks and fuel getting to plug.
It will not fire at all . Spits once maybe after 1st pull then
20 more nothing.  Clean up plug , then same again.

- NOT tried new fuel
- NOT tried new fuel hoses
- just piston ring - I'll log that but that is a last resort .

I will try new fuel a d then I'll buy a carb with bits off net
But with fuel lines.

If that don't work then it's scrap but I might saw the engine in half
To see if piston ring bust.

What damned annoyingly poor engines to work on

Hi All

The title says it all really. The sliders on my newly acquired RD40 have seen better days and these have come up on eBay. The lugs suggest they are from an earlier bike and I just wanted to make sure they will work ok before taking the plunge.

How to put it on it's centre stand. I've heard some daft questions but this is #1.

Have you got any pictures of the top of the pistons?
it doesn't look to me like you have had an air leak, but pictures of the piston crowns would confirm this.
How long had the bike been running before it seized? How did you warm the bike up?
One picture shows the ring end has bent upwards, which would indicate it might have caught on one of the ports, is it possible the rings rotated?

Where do you grab a yds7 when there's no handle by the seat?
