The DR650 High Compression piston install has begun.

At TDC on the compression stoke my cam was in this position. As you can see there’s a horizontal line on the end of the camshaft that lines up with the head and mine has a dob of white paint on the exhaust side, and the 32E marking was at ~2 o’clock. This was consistent with other pictures I found on the internet.

At the rear of the cam there is a notch that sits in the 9 o’clock position at TDC and a dab of white paint at approximately 3 o’clock on the rear lobe, again both of these were consistent with other pics I’d found.

The stock piston, this has done 35,000km.
