i'm re-reading what you did, and im just curious what exactly you mean by "i connected both sets of holes" on the piston. the k-star has two sets of two holes on the piston right? do you mean instead of 4 individual holes, you opened them up and made 2 slots, and then lowered them 2mm? or did you just make all the holes into one big slot? i cant remember exactly what the kstar piston looks like so i'm just trying to imagine what you did here.
i found out today i have $118 sitting in my old city waiting for me. sounds like another k-star is heading my way as soon as i rescue that cash. yay
