    Kawi 550 reed motor piston clearance

    Hey everyone, just been browsing the forum for a few weeks and seem to be getting alot of different info regarding piston clearance on a 92 550 reed motor.
    I've noticed many people saying to run a lot of clearance, .005-.007", never heard anything like that in the 22yrs of being a motorcycle technician. Any suggestions or guidance would be appreciated. I will be using .5mm over wiseco pistons and oem cylinders. Thanks in advance.

    Recommended clearance may be on the packaging, but 005-006 should be about right. What were you expecting?

    Ok, thanks, seems to be the consensus or at least the average. As I haven't received the pistons yet, I haven't seen the recommendation from wiseco, but I can't recall in 20+ years as a motorcycle tech, seeing a clearance this big. Glad I asked, and again, thanks for the reply.
