    So here are a few picks

    unfortunately the mirror attachment don’t fit inside the plug hole :( so seeing the bore ain’t an option at this point

    but straight down shots work

    although findings aren’t ideal, for research purposes and price the resolution seems pretty good to me

    pics are of my suspect cylinder

    and also inside the tank I bought, checking the weld line for rust

    They are pretty good pics.. there is a lot of Oil in that cylinder.. rings cant be too bad if it is still there after doing your compression test..(at least in that cylinder) I wouldnt have used that much oil for a compression test though.. you dont need much at all.

    Strange thing is I checked the camera in the other cylinders and they were dry, but this one as you can see was quite wet

    I only used like 3 little pumps of my oil squirt bottle, didn’t think to be to much maybe it was

    still learning as I go

    motor will come out regardless, and I’ll post some more in depth pics at a later date

    but for the excercise and passing on results on here for anyone interested in one of these and their current resolution will hopefully answer a few questions for some

    It’s def not a snap on scope, but happy with it all the same

    Too keen for me, I'd try running the motor in the hope that the heat would release the rings if they're stuck on the piston. Maybe a bit of penetrene in each chamber, too.

    Had a couple of deliveries today...
    Postie bike bits.. and crimping tool so I can sort out a few connections on the SRX.. I just couldnt get the right crimping dies for the other tool I have.
    I wont be using the Pod filter initially... I want to see how it runs on the standard filter setup first.
    I still have an aftermarket CDI coming as well... all jobs for the weekend... Off to Dubbo & Narromine for the next 2 days... finally getting out of the house :)
