so i go and get my carbs tuned to find out that i've got no compresson on the right cylinder. 30 on the right and 120 on the left. i tear down my top end to find out that im missing my top piston ring on the right and loads of blow-by. thank god i hadn't seized her or f up my entire motor. so...im getting it bored over to 65, some new banchee pistons and im getting the heads re-surfaced. had fun taking that top end off though. anyway...thats what i've been up to lately. you?

yeah im getting the heads done by a rd350 specialist. it only needs a small amount of skimming too. can't wait to get it back together though. all this time i've been running on one cylinder and it's still been a bad ass little bike. it's going to be insane when i've got her running top notch.

You are going to love that RD once you put it back and will trip out when it comes up on the pipe
My old RD would pull the front end up thru the first 3 gears was such a blast to ride.
