Be advised that you won't get as much power from the conversion as a stock 1200. The 1200 uses different heads and cams. But it sure will run better than a stock 883!!!!

How to change piston on Jonway 50 cc 2012


Air cooled 50cc motors usually have 4 long bolts holding the head on, they go up through the 'jug' and through the head to bolts under a decorative cover or just out inthe open. remove nuts or entire bolts and then use a mallet to whack the 'jug' (cylinder) to break it free of the lower gasket, pull jug up and off piston, remove old piston by circlips or other retention and install new one. pinch rings and work jug back over piston, lower onto case gasket (if you didnt rip it removing it) and button back up. Check cylinder before replacing piston to make sure a new one will work. If the walls are scored, you will have to get it bored and use a +.25mm piston.

883 to 1200 conversion.


Hi Anonymous, the only sure way to figure out what you have is measure the bore of the cylinders and the diameter of the piston skirt and should be some where in the neighborhood of 3.5" for a 1200 cc bore and 3.0" for and 883 cc bore. Good luck

Hello, I need a wiring diagram for a big twin evo 86' . It is the first evo engine that was maked.I need it for my sportster . grtz, Andy Belgium


This page has a ton of wiring diagrams: http://www.smokeriders.com/diagrams/index.php?list=Harley_Davidson/Twins. The sportster did not come with a Big Twin 86" motor it came with the Sportster Ironhead & Evo motors. The sizes where; Ironhead 900cc, 1000cc & Evo 883cc & 1200cc. Still I would try the link I gave you it should help.

How do i get to the piston on a 2003 wr 250f


You need to remove the fuel tank and then the engine. You then remove the top head by removing the four bolts holding the head and cylinder jug on. slide the jug upwards off of the piston. To remove the piston you will need to separate your case

I have a Vintage 1978 Carabela 450 MX it needs a piston and jug. Any ideas?


search in the yellow pages for your local motorcycle repair shop they should be able to provide you with a phone # for a machine shop that will bore the jug out to accommodate the appropriate oversize piston just make sure you acquire the .030" over sized piston first or .010" O.S piston because you will get it much cheap than them through bikebandit .com
