    Quote: "left some marks on the pistons"...

    If the ring groove is not buggered up, (the width of the machined part where the oil ring goes), you should be fine.

    Installing the old oil ring and measuring the gap between the ring (like you would on the compression rings) and the PISTON, should give you an idea if it's an issue. Compare to the rest of the piston in different locations..


    From my S2 shop manual (check yours):




    And I hope using a hammer for installing pistons in the block, your using the wooden handle end of the tool.

    Re: Error 33 breaking my bike abroad- urgent help please

    Yup! In the very little free time I have I try to go out riding. In the mountains (aka where the fun is) it's now dropping to freezing overnight- it's not long before it's a safety concern during the day. Riding inside and around town should still be good for a month or so, so there's still a chance I'll be able to ride the FZ6 this year.


    Here's a pic from last week:

    Yes. Managed to "reduce" the cylinder scratches by about half using the scotchbrite pad, therefore I've decided to buy a new OEM piston and rings set.

    Yes, got pistons 2 to 4 reinserted with the rod bolts fully settled in.

    You were right- removing and reinserting the pistons didn't do any damage to the rings.

    Now I'm waiting for the new parts to arrive.

    Re: Error 33 breaking my bike abroad- urgent help please

    Managed to take advantage of the 24C weather today (likely the last warm day of this year) and gave my bikes a good washing.

    Spiders, webs, dust, rotten leaves- it really showed that the FZ6's been sitting for a long time, even though it was covered by it's mini bike shed.

    Also washed the FZ6 oil pan- even using brake cleaner spray (which usually instantly blasts away grease)- it took almost an hour to scrub clean the exterior of the oil pan.

    In the end I though "damn the FZ6 is a good looking bike" and I took this pic
