I stumbled across a website that listed a number of internal parts like rings and pistons that could be switched between japanese brands...I never thought that was possible,it must be a mechanics worst nightmare to source parts for one of those frankenbikes...so it's quite possible those rings, pistons and wrist pins are stock items...if the bore is a common size a switch to Wiesco would solve your problem..oneBEARDtwoWHEELS wrote:Not trying to revive a really old thread but I have looked everywhere. I am a new member of the forums thanks to my recently acquired '80 CBX that was my dad's. The bike has been sitting for over 15yrs and needs some serious TLC. The problem is I don't want to start tearing into the engine...because it is an OMT bored engine. If I were to break a ring I don't know where I could find any replacements since OMT has long been out of business. Maybe some of you CBX guys with OMT engines have some sources? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately he has not been here in years.
There might be something in the archives.

They do custom pistons and rings.

The article of value to you Beard has been translated to English. It is a magazine article documenting an OMT engine build for a CB900F.
There should be a few things you can borrow for your engine restoration.
