    Cool Replacement Piston 1995 SL650-STD

    Hey guys -

    Going to begin tearing down the top end of a 1995 SL650-STD that has a hole through the middle piston from the previous owner. My question is - Where do I find the piston size and/or the correct replacement piston? The MAG and PTO cylinders both look just fine, so do I replace all three, or leave the originals in? Dumb questions to the experts I am sure, however this is my first time getting this deep into an engine.

    Also, looking for the thumb throttle lever for these machines. Both are broken on mine and I am sure the epoxy is going to give way eventually. Cant find anything anywhere!

    Thanks!

    You have to get some measurements either on the piston or cylinder bore to determine what you currently have. Whether it is still STD or oversize and how much oversize.
    If compression is still good I would leave other two alone.

    Replacement can be found here:
    watcon.com
    shopsbt.com
    ebay.com

    As far as the throttle goes, get one of these:http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Slippery...JXo1VR&vxp=mtr
