riding my tomos going about 38-40mph on the flats. went down a big hill had it pegged against the 40 probably going 45 then it seized. jug looks ok though
you didnt even smear the piston over the rings
that's not even bad....
at least you went out in style
That isn't bad at all. Pop off the rings, sand down the piston a little and run it. Isn't that a stock piston?? lol
I would run it.
If thats the worst seize you have this century then count yourself lucky.
I have seen some pretty gruesome seize carnage and that is really more of an owwy.
Iron stock cylinder : 1
Stock aluminum piston : 0
it smeared worse on the other side and its kinda hard to see in the pic but there is some deep grooves cut in the side of the piston
My polini had a chunk come out of the top of the crown above the ring. Blasting then nothing. No compression, nothing. Until you break something and have little pieces of it rattling around in your engine, NBD.
thoroughly disappointed by this seize
where is the picture of someones circlip that blasted all the way up the piston through the rings? now THAT was a sieze
had a 406 ATK dirtbike do that before blew chunks of piston straight out the tailpipe
seized, sanded and ran so many times the aluminum just got so brittle it shattered the skirt. Made a gremlin bell out of it.
one more try
A piston without its skirt is very arousing!
This is the god hates Tate seize.
This one looks like someone failed to learn how to draw a 3-D cylinder.
It was this scooter I was on my way to go show and likely sell and the fucking needle bearing exploded. Its better that it exploded on me that right after I sold it but it would have been even better if it never exploded.
There was all kinds of shrapnel embedded in the top of the piston.
When I pulled the cylinder to kit it I decided I might was well grill black the exhaust dince it was already off.
I could play that thing like a maraca.
This has to be one of my favorite threads.
lee's was one of the worst i've seen
Dean, that bat on your profile has to be the sickest one I have ever seen. Brilliant! What's the setup on that?
Lees engine, ouch, must've felt that when that tore through the case, holy fuck.
I do love me some carnage thread.
hah was going to mention how everybody fails so hard at moped, but then i saw the pic of lees and was humbled. damn!
I would have been pissed if that happened to mine
