Piston rings are important to get the engine running properly. To replace them you will need to get at the pistons. As you don't say what bike you have I can't be more specific, With a 2 stroke it is easy, a four stroke is a bit more involved. Incidentally I doubt if the engine has NO piston rings. But they may be worn or broken. And in either case the bits from them are in the crankcase somewhere, this is not good- I would get it seen to as soon as possible.

SOURCE: worried about the cylinder

Give the rings and cylinder some time to break in. They need to get to know each other.

SOURCE: piston rings

First, be sure they actually do fit the bore. Take a ring and insert it in the bore. push the ring halfway into the bore using the piston. There should be about a 1/32" gap in the ring. Anything more than 1/16" and you need rings the next size up. If the ring won't go into the cylinder because the gap fully closes, the rings need to be a smaller size.

With the correct size rings, put them on the piston. Some pistons have an index pin in the ring groove Fit the gap to the pin. Put the piston mid-stroke and place the cylinder over the top of the piston. Squeeze the rings closed as you gently tap the cylinder downward and over the rings.

Please rate this solution. Thanks garethholleb!

SOURCE: loss of compression

Its PROBABLY just the rings, but ya gotta open it up to know for sure. If you are handy, and have a manual, you can do it, but it is tricky, especially getting the head bolts back right. The first time I did it, it took me a week, I had to consult my local shop, and I ended up blowin a head gasket cause I didnt torque the head bolts correctly

SOURCE: What causes premature wear in the rings and bore of BMW K75s?

the K75 has very reliable engine .. its unusual for it to fail in this way .. the frozen rings would suggest overheating and thats possible if the radiator fan fails (that happens often before your 80,000) .. many of the pre 1990 k75s would smoke after storing for awhile .. that was a ring gap positioning problem .. that was corrected in newer models .. the smoke however would not have damaged the cylinders .. maybe in the extreme could foul a plug .. is it possible that someone put something in your gas tank ??.. or could it have been run without oil/water or perhaps the wrong type oil (like transmission fluid) ... that engine should have lasted longer than most cars .. nice smooth bike ..

SOURCE: how do I fit motorcycle piston rings without

IF THE RINGS ARE THE RIGHT ONES YOU SHOULDNT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS. INSERT ONE END OF THE RING IN THE CORRECT GROOVE WITH THE RING LAYING ON TOP OF THE PISTON AND ROLL IT AROUND SLIDING DOWN OVER THE SIDE OF THE PISTON. THE RINGS ARE SOMEWHAT FORGIVING AND WILL STAND A LITTLE FORCE BUT BE CAREFUL NOT TO BEND THEM.

Pulsar 220 Bike emits little smoke even after Rebuild, how do I fix?


Did you clean the bore REALLY REALLY good with hot soapy water and a brush before assembly? Need to remove all the grit from the honing process. Test by rubbing hard with a white cloth.It MUST still be white after rubbing. If not then clean it again. It will wear out the rings quickly if it's not right. Solvent will not clean it properly.

What would cause my 1999 sportster 883 to have white smoke coming from the exhaust?


sounds like it could be piston rings allowing oil to get into the pistons then burning out causing the white smoke stand behind the bike when its running and put your hand over the exhaust if there is we specs of oil on your hand or even a tissue sheet would do then afraid this is the piston rings and sadly not a job for the faint hearted mechanic hope its not best of luck

Exhaust pipe comes out white smoke when start bike on side stand


Continuous or just for the 5-10 seconds.
If continuous you may have oil seeping past your pistons oil rings or valve guides oil seals.
Check your spark plug see if they are fouled badly (covered heavily and oily) or just covered by oil and sooth lightly.
If 5-10 sec it is normal as the engine is heating up there are normally a little oil seeping past the seals.

Sometimes can't put first gear on, have to roll bike forvard half a metre toget it in, also some smoke coming out of front of the bike (kawasaki zx6r ninja)


The shifting problem is a bent shift fork. It will only get worse and is expensive to fix. The smoke is probably getting past a exhaust pipe gasket. When you fix the shifting it would be a good time to rebuild the top end with new pistons and rings.
