 So from there I decided to stop into my local shop where a buddy of mine parts out bikes. We came to a trade deal on a complete xr200 motor that had been stuffed (in a pretty jankey manner) into an rm125 frame. We yanked the motor out and I brought it home to again find some unsavory bits o metal when I drained the oil, so once again, exploratory surgery is in order. I'm hoping that between the two lumps I can put one together though.

Should have taken the whole RM and left that motor behind. Haha. Or go find a 2004 on up CRF450 and smoke everybody else on the trail!

What do you think causes this?

Sticky grudgeon pin, not allowing the piston to move freely on the rod?

I'm guessing it's a result of running this thing without an air filter, or low on oil, or to hot, or maybe all 3 at once lol

Lamest bike ever. Might as well ride a bicycle.  Xr200's are worthless

Got a few minutes to break the cases apart tonight and found the rest of the piston that decided to spend it's fragmented days both behind the oil pump gear drive housing and the biggest pieces in the bottom of the case. I also found that the small end of the con rod was a bit worse for wear, so next I am going to tear down the original motor and swap in the crank.
