I have changed pistons in my engine now and is done, head is on place and everything.
BUT now i saw in the joyner service manual that it was important that the connecting rods was installed "the right way" (D. When installing piston and connecting rod assembly into cylinders. The marked surfaces of the
connecting rod and piston must face the front of engine (fig.3-10).)
The pistons is correctly installed but when i installed the connecting rods i couldnt see any difference from side to side so i just put them back in and now one of them is "rotated" 180 degree if i looked at the texts on them.
So, does it matter? Is the manual a little bit "universal" or it is important? Has it to do with some oil lubrication? The only thing i noticed when i intstalled them was the bearing shell that has to be put back right so the notch goes in to the groove.
Anyone has any good answear to this?
Hey all, so i’m in the process of an engine swap and thought it may be a good time to let everyone know I am going to sell the beloved Modded 800cc 😢
Those who subscribe to the youtube channel know what a beast this engine has become! Those that don’t here it is...
Drop in Suzuki F8B with closed diff tranny. Engine only had 50hrs total. This is the carbureted version that Joyner used in its 2006 Mini/Sand Vipers.
Engine is easily 2x more powerful than a stock F8B. This is the little grenade that’s had my buggy going over 70mph as seen on youtube.
Heres why it’s so powerful-
Custom ground camshaft from American Custom Cams. Shaved Head higher compression with 030” clearance. Weber 32/36 carb jetted for sea level. Full stage 3 ported and polished head with enlarged oil ports. Performance valve job. Custom build headers.

I have a 2018 Massimo MSU 500. I have looked everywhere for performance parts and all I have been able to find is the dyno bost module and a K&N air filter. does anyone know of any other parts out there or interchangeable parts from other makes or models?
