Default DT 175

     

Hey peeps. I've recently bought a pair of DT175s to ride on my property. One is a '82 model while the other is a '93 (the pair cost me $1000) and they both run. The plan is to spend a bit of time and money on these to have a bit of fun with. Upon servicing the '93, i found the oil was white. i then decided to do a little digging and now the engine is out on my bench withe the cylinder of it. What i need to know is if the piston kits on ebay are any good?
i've seen the wiseco name come up but they seem to only service the earlier models. Are they the pistons the same?
All newbie stuff i know, but any help would be appreaciated

I have used Ebay piston kits in little bikes with no ill effects so far. It might be worth a shot if the quality pistons are a lot higher in expense.
As for pistons being the same, you'd have to compare the parts fiche for both and look for specs to see if anything changed over the years.

Thanks mate. i might just throw a cheap piston in and see how it goes.
I'd need to get the cylinder machined first?

Whether or not it needs machining depends on the current condition of the cylinder and if there are any gouges from a piston seizing.
