Hello chaps, the old girl is smoking a bit and having decided to take the engine out to replace the valve stem seals, i thought it worthwhile to check the rings too. One’s cracked and an oil scraper has had better days. Any advice on where to get new rings? CMSNL are out of stock and both Wemoto and David Silver don’t carry them. I need to get her ready for Donington!
Send member StuartM a message, he had a set of STD rings for sale a while ago, they came from ebay seller Cruzinimage in Japan, i have a set in one of my R’s and they are ok, he is out of stock on his ebay listing
May pay to message Cruzin, he replies quickly in English normally to see when he is expecting new stock
PM me your address and I will send you the set of rings I have here as they are standard from Japan reseller as Keith said and I required.25 oversize. Only realised when I had the engine stripped.
Agree on the viton seals, mine came from Holland. And your local Honda dealer is a good source, they have access to a Europe wide part search, found an original base gasket in Switzerland.
Keith is a great source of knowledge for the rebuild, great support throughout.
