Ok Kid good video. keep  them coming.

Please don't take my help as me being a richard. (no offense to any richrads out there)

A few things I need to point out.

The Piston is connected to the Connecting Rod, the Connecting Rod is Connected to the Crankshaft. The Stroke is that distance the piston travels.

We normally refer to a "Stroker" as a Crankshaft that has had the Stroke Lengthened. The lingo would be if ya had a overbore and stroked 454 chevy she would be referred to as "Poked and Stroked"

The Cover on top is the Valve or Rocker Arm Cover. either is correct. some market segment call it one or the other 

On the all important Circlips. I know those supplied  are in the shape of a G so the verbiage is ok, I don't like the G style clips as they are way to consumer friendly, I' going to do some measurements and swap out for a circlip or spiroloc..

There is only on way Circlips are installed and it is very very important.

This is Alan, Alan has not and does not work for Wiseco, Alan has been MX/SX team managers and owners of several teams one of the more notable MOTO XXX. I have worked with Alan"s race teams for many years

His wrench at the shop is demonstrating to proper way to install a circlip, I will leave the Why for discussion.

Point out the Copper coat on the gaskets and why its the stuff to use and not the blue goo.

We should also sometime dress proper preparation of the cylinder for installation, cleaning with a spray then wiping down with oil soaked rags aint it.

Oh you are a Richard hahahaha good points all around guys, even at my age I'm still learning, I was thinking of the 180 bb kit for my bike but was waiting for Dan to do it first but he has to much on his plate for me to even bug him.

Lol. All great notes! Thanks again Piston, that why you are "The Man"

Still have so much to learn, that is why I promoted all the other 171cc install vids. and this kick-ass website.

So people are able to learn from pro's like Daniel, and many of the fine brothers here.... much like I did.

My video's are more of a conversation piece, for the people I run into who I blow off the line from 0-40....lol.

That Taida engine is the best thing I purchased all year.

100 more miles of break-in period, but let me tell ya, it's like a new bike!

On my CVT install I will have all the parts correctly named.....Richard:doh:

Just kidding, you know I love ya.
