Possible stock piston replacements....

Thank you for sharing all this great info on your motor!

For stock piston replacement, I wonder if the pistons from the 4afe motor might be a good choice...   same bore size, and wrist pin size but this engine is a very narrow valve angle 4 valve per cylinder motor unlike the very wide valve angle of the 4age.

Pretty sure the deck height is similar.  Might be a very simple way to get new pistons and rings  into a Vision.

Add Sta-Bil.  Run bike to get treated gas into carbs. Stop bike.  Remove vacume line from fuel petcock.  Start bike.  Open carb float bowl drain valves.  Continue to run bike until it dies of fuel starvation.  Close carb float bowl drain valves.  Reattach fuel petcock control vacume.  Turn off key.  Wait for good riding weather.  Ride bike.

General Board / Put my Vision away for the winter
« Last post by skucera on December 02, 2018, 10:04:59 PM »
After putting the Christmas lights on the house, I took a quick spin down to the gas station for a fill of alcohol-free premium and then put my bike away for the winter.  So ends the most trouble-free season of riding I've had in years.  (I hope I didn't just jinx it.)

 Mike, Someday we should get together and do that. The AMA vintage days is good too. I've been there a couple times for AHRMA events. Biggest swap meet I've ever seen. Last  time I was there, there were over 600 venders.. If you couldn't find something for your relic you weren't looking hard enough.  I found a new in the box fuel tank and oil tank for a Yamaha CT1 while there, and he had more.  Think about it. 

 Ken.

And they will have the riders. Rins has matured and Mir is fast. Today is test day at Valencia.

I would like to see Suzuki do well, they seem to have sufficient engineering depth, and with luck they will have good riders that can put them on the podium more frequently. There seems to me some obstacle in communication/understanding between riders and the "factory" which means more frequent rider turn over.  Ducati too, but I guess this is pretty universal among the teams.

Yes,  Lorenzo to Honda should be interesting. Stoner got off a very different Ducati for Honda and won so I don't see a problem for Lorenzo,  except for Mr Marquez! Lorenzo has never been much of a team player and I doubt he will change. Could be good fun. There will still be some good competition. Yamaha seem to finally be back in the mix and Suzuki is right in there.

I hope Lorenzo can do well on the Honda next season.  I think we will see some competition between Jorge and Marc, and I hope it doesn't go sour.  Who will go quicker? 8)

Have not seen much about the race or qualifying yet, other than that it is expected to be wet and Lorenzo will race. His last for Ducati. I  guess he will test the Honda on Monday?
