No, this was a local guy from Renton "*** buys bikes". Actually pretty easy to deal with. I did alright considering most of the bikes I sold him were attained for next to nothing! Wasn't till after they were gone that I realized  :umm: there went one of my parts bikes with a lot of good stuff on them....................D

Jim, I was looking at your bike when it was for sale ( I know Garrett did a bunch of work on it), at that time I had an S3A that I got for $50 that was complete, rusty, no-title, and frozen solid. I thought about how much it would cost to make it a 5K bike, and I figured probably 6K, if I was lucky. Fortunately some flipper came and gave me $1200 for it. According to him it's heading back to Japan...................................D

Also, after taking a magnifying glass to the rings, the painted one is stamped "N---50", the unpainted one "2N---50". Don't know if that makes any difference........................D

Greg, I just went through a few sets of my NOS "green box" R5 & DS7 rings. These were still factory sealed. Most have one green and one plain ring, a few had two green rings. There is a slip of paper in the box that states "Application of the expanders", colored yellow to be coupled with top piston ring, non-colored to be coupled with 2nd piston ring. After careful scrutiny I could see the yellow on one of the expanders. While this isn't definitive, I would think the colored ring is the top one........................................... :twocents: .D

I bought one for my DS-7 a couple of years ago, as Wade stated the instructions are vague at best. I am still planning on trying it after I get enough break in miles logged. As of now it's still in the box. I did hear a few comments about the engine starting backwards if it wasn't timed perfectly.............................................D
