Piston heart

“Hey guys. Been a subscriber since the early ’80s. I has been a two-stroke loyalist all my life. Not to long ago I went to put a new piston in my YZ250 and this is the response I got from her. You can say we have a good relationship. And to think I considered a four-stroke.” –Pete from Ottawa, Canada.
