    1977 XR75 piston and rings set

    First thing I do when I get a bike home is valves, carb, points/condensor and static timing. Found out there were no valve spring retainers or the keepers... no wonder the piston would lock up every so often while I first tried to take a compression reading..a valve would drop down and stop it...
