    What is the piston clearance on a 785?

    Anyone have a manual handy? Need to know what the stock specs are on piston clearances for the 785. Installing ProX's

    std: .003-.005" 0.075-0.13mm
    limit is .008" .20mm
    This is what I have listed in my 97 785 book

    PROX should be .005, no tighter. Do not even think of going .003

    If piping it set it up at .006" and make sure you measure from the skirts.

    From my measurements, the piston has about .00475 clearance built in. I didn't have a manual and wasn't going to assume that was it. Thanks for the info guys.

    There is no "built in" clearance.

    You take the size of the piston & make the bore .0055 bigger than the size of the piston.

    I set my ProX up at .0055.
