Make a thread of your own, show your bike. We're all interested to see what everyone else has done.

Is that all the mechanical experience you've had? Just curious.
I've worked on cars, and I was one of those kids who always had his bike upside down and with wrench in hand. I also like to solder electronics, family tradition, I guess. But I don't really consider myself particularly 'mechanically inclined', rather I think it is just a product of boredom and my insatiable appetite for knowledge; knowledge is power, and I like power. Who here doesn't; that's why we put motors on our bikes!

Ive been trying for the last 20 minutes to try get this on, i have pinched the rings and it looks like they should fit but they simply don’t when i try put the head and sleeve over the piston. Any suggestions on what i can do?
original or new ring?
new ring should be checked for end gap when inserted into the cyl without piston..
