The wisecos have a "FWD" dot on them. The "M series" instructions that come with the kit say that the dot points towards the exhaust port. So does the rear piston dot points towards the exhaust or the front of the vehicle? Just alittle confused. Thanks

They seem to have the same valve releifs cut in them so I am not sure if it matters :confused:

thanks g-rider!!! If they both face forward, that would leave me to believe that there is a specific piston for the front and rear?

No specific piston for the front or rear. Doesn't matter as long as dots face front of engine :tup:

Thanks man. I am just confused on the purpose of the markings. If there is no designation for a certain piston for a certain cylinder, then that means that I could take the front piston out,( which has the marking facing the front of the bike and the exhaust ports of that cylinder), and insert it into the rear cylinder, the piston would then face towards the front of the bike but face the intake ports.

It is kind of difficult to explain but it just does not make since? If they both face forward(front of bike), then you would have to know which one went in the front and rear cylinder:mad::confused::mad::confused:
