What makes you think Cini will know any better then anyone else? Unless of corse they are pulling the zonger engines out and putting random white rings in there.


Back the original question, you need to be alot more specific lol, hard white ring? O-ring? Where did it come from?

Ps. On ya rags mate?

ok so you used the wrong oil, how does the bike sound, does it sound any different? If it sounds the same as before could it just be that the clutch is slipping? Most non motorbike specific oils contain friction modifiers that will cause clutches to slip. As for the white ring, got me stumped

it isnt the exhaust gasket is it? Did you have the pipe off? Thats the only thing i can think of that would be white and that size. As for the clutch, easiest way to fix that is new plates, i know some say to just take em out and clean em but sometimes you cant get all of the slipery stuff out of the clutch fibre discs. New clutch plates are cheap and atleast you'll know that you will only have to do the job once

dunno then, from your description i thought it would have to be an exhaust gasket especially being hard and brittle, but i dont have a zonger so i'm not to familiar with the oil cooler plumbing, cant be too many places on the engine a seal around that size would fit, perhaps a seal/spacer for the oil filter? i'm sure someone with zonger knowledge will chime in

Could it have been the little oring that goes around the dipstick (no not you, the actual dipstick) has somehow fallen into the engine, maybe somewhere around the time you were putting lawn mower oil into your bike?

if theres no o ring at the base of the dipstick turn the bike on and if it feels like puffs of air are coming out its the dipstick seal. if there is get a new one from bunnings and start it..
lawnmower oil man come on.
