Hi, i have honda spada 250 vt, and it needs to change the pistons and the pistons rings set, is the honda 250vtr will fit it.

Your question is if the pistons and rings off of a VTR will fit your VT. Chances are they will, but IMO this isn't a good idea. If you blew pistons and rings, you should buy new pistons and rings. In which case why not buy the ones made to fit your bike? They should be equally available.

How do i chang worn rings?

im assuming you mean piston rings. to change your piston rings you need to remove spark plugs, empty your oil, remove your oil pan. unbolt your crank shaft and anything attached to it. at this point you should be able to pull your pistons down remove the rings and put new ones on as per the instructions provided with the new rings. use a hone or at least acid wash the cylinders before you reinstall your pistons. also make sure you reset your timing correctly. goodluck

My hyundai accent piston rings need a change how

If it needs rings, it probably needs a lot of other engine work, like a cylinder hone, or if it's out of spec, a bore, which means new pistons and on. You might look into a good remanufactured engine that comes with a warrantee if your has a ton of miles on it.

How do i change me piston and rings on a yz125 2002

If you have never stripped down an engine get expert help .Piston rings are very fragile and can be snapped very easily .They also fit in there correct place on the piston by a small pin in the ring slot and you will neen a piston ring shimming assembly kit to keep the pistons in the correct position while you slide them into the cylinders .

I recently rebuilt a 1960's model 350 Jawa 2 stroke twin engine using a later model crankshaft assembly,with needle roller small end bearings.But the pistons still use the three cast iron rings.My question...

I think you have gone as far as you can with what you have. A damn clever job by the way. The issues you run into with the 2 ring vs. 3 ring piston on your bike is piston slap as the skirt length changes with a 2 ring setup.

Oil; burning

If you changed rings and valve gaides before you fitted new rings have you check cylinder block?it mybe cylider worn out so it was to rebore engine block and put new piston with new rings.
the ather thing it hapen sometimes when you fitting piston rings, check how piston rings is it should be all piston rings defrent direction inside the piston groves.
Use original parts.
