This piston kit was in my DT400C for less than 200 miles. When I had the cylinder bored for this piston I mistakenly let the shop owner talk me into a loser bore than i wanted and soon I had piston slap again. So I then went to a nos Yamaha piston and new bore to size I wanted. According to Wiesco this piston kit is for 1975 - 1978 DT400s. I no longer have my 400C so I have no use for it. $40.00 + shipping.

Wiseco require about double the clearance of genuine pistons so the shop owner was probably covering his tail for the possibility of seizing. I know my 360 that had a Wiseco was noisy until it go hot then settled. Was bored to recommended Wiseco clearance. Went for many years. That was in an RT2MX cylinder by the way. Anyway, looks like a good deal for someone if unmarked on piston & rings.

I have not heard from run103 since indicating wanting to buy the piston kit nor have I been able to contact him. So the piston kit is still for sale.

I would be interested in knowing the recommended bore number from what you wanted and what the machine shop suggested? Then, I would like to hear from ENDURONUT.

This is a very touchy subject.

Still want to hear from ENDURONUT.

0.003 is huge and potentially slap city

My CT1 was at 0.002 and was/is not in spec.

I think the AT1 / CT1 book calls for
0.016 - 0.017 to get a desired ring gap.

Wiseco could sieze at those #'s ..

The difference between 0.017 and 0.002 is 3/10,000ths.

The manual refers to cast pistons, the Wisecos are forged. Totally different.
