WTB - (For Kwak Owners) 1 x Z650 Piston

We've sorted out the garage this afternoon and when checking my Z parts realised I don't need new piston rings as the ones I have look new, but we did discover that one of the pistons has been damaged at some point.... So I'm in need of a replacement.... Can anyone help at all?

Re: WTB - (For Kwak Owners) 1 x Z650 Piston

Loopy - just did a quick check on eBay and came across these...

A (suspected to be complete) engine which has been stripped and is currently in bits- Item Number: 160353685772 (is about 115 miles from you - not too far from Southampton)

A engine which is currently built (complete but has been stood for roughly four years - just shy of 50k miles) - Item Number: 220464405357 (is about 100 or so miles from you - at 120.00 BIN I might be inclined to go for the first one but its up to you.)

This last one is a bit of a wild stab - heres a SR650 which basically looks not far from a field bike... Although its complete (and I doubt you would want it) I'm just wondering if the pistons would be the same? Might make the search easier? Item Number: 180393565986 (Also, have a search for a KZ650 - I think they used the same engines)

....Just been though 14 pages and couldn't find any pistons being sold by themselves.

I did find how ever a person who is stripping their Z650 (bonus - hes only in Witney)... Item Number: 280379755898

Cheers Twin, I did run through Ebay last nigt but missed the one at Whitney so I've just sent them a message

I saw the stripped engine but in all honesty I'm not looking to buy another whole engine (SSB would tell me off for 'cluttering' up the garage with more bike bits)

Will keep checking on there as pistons do turn up every now and then..

filling the garage with YOUR junk is just wrong

my junk is perfectly acceptable though

As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground. As long as I fall, I'm safe & sound.

In all fairness, don't you sometimes "borrow permeantly" some of Loopy's Junk?

I would like to say on my behalf, SSB I had nothing to do with this. I merely stated a fact

But now Loopy said it, I think you can start knicking more of her parts (well what ever is worth something to you )
