    Ring end gap and piston to wall clearance?

    I was wondering if anyone knows or knows where to find ring end gap and piston to wall clearance spec for a 95 SLX 780? Piston is 0.50mm over

    Thanks

    Just pulled the sheet from one of my wsm 750 pistons. .0045-.005 is wsm's recommended clearance witth a .010-.022 ring end gap. It was recommended to me to go .0005 looser than that spec, so maybe go to .0055 clearance.

    Follow the recommendations from the piston manufacturer. (unless they're Wiseco)

    They should have been included in the piston box.
