Part: Piston Pin with C-Style Clips for Honda CB360 / CL360 Scrambler / CJ360 Motorcycles
Why You Need This: Not all top engine overhauls end in installing new pistons. If you find yourself lucky, the cylinder heads measure within the published service limits and all you need is a hone and re-ring. Even so, while the engine is apart, you should take a good look at the wrist pins that came out of your pistons. Piston pins take a beating and end up with grooves worn in them from the connecting rod. If the surface of the wrist pin is not perfectly smooth, it should be replaced for a new one during your rebuild.
Our replacement piston pin kit is just what you need. Made from high quality materials our wrist pins are designed for the original cast pistons found in the Honda CB360 / CL360 Scrambler / CJ360 engine. They will work with NOS Honda and our very own CMC "Pulsar" oversize pistons as well. Even though many wrist pins on the market do have the right diameter they are too short in length, which causes the pin to float in the piston. This will lead the retaining clips to hammer loose resulting in serious engine damage. With our CMC piston pin kit you can forget about this problem, as it will fit perfectly inside your piston without any additional give. The wrist pins come with a new pair of "C" style retaining clips, which should be changed out every time they are removed.
Each pin and clip kit is sold individually. You will need one set per piston, two sets per engine. To get the rebuild right, make sure to pick up a fresh pair of piston rings and an overhaul gasket kit. If you do need to replace your pistons, our "Pulsar" series oversize piston kits are also available for your Honda CB360 / CL360 / CJ360 engine complete with piston rings, a wrist pin and retaining clips.
Installation Tip: Install one clip on each piston on the side that faces the cam chain before installing the piston on the connecting rod. Oil the piston and wrist pin well upon assembly. Be very careful not to drop the second clip in the engine during installation and make sure that the ends of the clip face 180 degrees away from the notch in the piston.
