Wanted; stock piston sets 99-01

I am needing 1 or 2 sets of pistons, take/offs or whatever in very good condition.

Thanks, Swamper

I don't think Happy Dan at the Vic Werks has parts for the older bikes, but he's worth a call as he is pretty well connected as well.

and try Rylan at the Vic Shop:

Both are great guys.

What's wrong with the bike? (ie - what caused the need for pistons? - Want to be sure there isn't an issue causing a need for more after we find these )

Thanks John, Rylan was the first I contacted. He had nothing. I will try Dan also.
As a life long wrench I have worked on a multitude of different engines including many scoots, that said, I have determined that the knocking in the mid cylinder area of # 805
and one of my 2000 SC's is either piston slap or a wrist pin problem.
In late 2016 #805 started the knocking, over winter I replaced it with the SC engine.
Around 25 k miles later the SC engine sounds the same as 805's.
When I find the time I will pull the cylinders & find out what's going on, Regardless I'm
going to need piston assemblies, I'm on a tight budget so I would rather find some good
take/offs, if possible.

Thanks, Swamper

Hey Swamper - it sounds like you know what you are doing.

Try Kent at Tri-K. He is a great guy, was a former Victory dealer and might have some parts for the older bikes. He also might be able to help diagnose your experience - he is pretty familiar with the older bikes.

I will keep asking around as well.
