Maybe i'm too cautious but a proper hone can take several thou out and as the piston/bore clearance is very tight plus reusing old pistons its just me thinking it might take too much whereas the flapwheel will simply remove glaze, i used to rebuild essex, kent and pinto engines very regularly for a lead footed mate and only ever used the "glaze busters" about at the time which were basicaly long shanked flap wheels

I have been using stainless since they first came out and that seller does quite a bit of good stuff along with special tools

The stainless ones will last a lot longer and are actualy cheaper. Ebay item 262018047322 is a piston and seal kit listed as 400 but they are the same. I have fitted quite a few of these with no problems at all

Me and Julie have met and she definately has more chance of getting the 400 to fly as i am, shall we say significantly, bigger!! If anybody remembers the Honda Melody it was a good day/bike if i could get one up to 25mph

Look at ebay item 184430930041 you would need a 60mm one. The tool you have will actually remove metal and make the clearance bigger the one i link to will just remove the glaze on the bore allowing new rings to seal better.
Honda rings are best but dearest as well.
I have some of those flap wheels here but not sure of postage cost to you

The 4 wire switch connects brown to brown white when in on position so the clock lights and sidelights both work
