That is the one that @mongerrr mentioned earlier. The gearing looks nice I’m a little afraid for the quality. On FB the seller is willing to sell (as in an extra payment) you insurance for broken teeth. That makes me doubt even more. If I open my crankcase I would like to have some faith in the quality. But maybe I’m being over cautious and is the quality on par. Just my 2 cents
The factory manual I have is the one floating around on the web. I think it is for OG. But that manual doesn’t mention that there are two directions. It just shows one picture with the piston ring. So that implies there shouldn’t be a difference between the two forks on the factory setup.
Okay, tried searching for the position of the piston rings on YouTube. I can not see any evidence that they are facing one or two directions on stock forks. So it keeps being a mystery. If I recall, I think the were in one direction when I did my forks. But I can’t tell you for sure.
@mongerrr I noticed that you run the Takegawa crank. I in the process of installing that myself. Did you noticed that there is no oil hole in the small end that goes through and through, just like the oem and Kitaco one. It just has a little hole that connects to nothing. How does the pin gets its oil? Any thoughts on that?
I think I didn’t explained myself right. I ment the part were the piston pin goes through the crank. But I’ll have another look tomorrow. As far as I could see there is no connection with the oil route.
