Hi
I am just rebuilding my CB175 K6 and have had the barrels rebored +0.75 and have purchased new 0.75 oversize
pistons and genuine Honda 0.75 oversize rings with one piece bottom oil control rings
The other 2 rings are black with a small step on the outside bottom edge and the other is silver on the outside with
what appears to be an outer bevelled edge top and bottom
Could anyone tell me which ring goes where please
They are all marked R and 75 which would be the top side I am assuming
I need to set the gaps in the bores to 8 thou I believe
Thanks for any help

You are correct that the marked side of the ring faces upward. The ring with the silver color should be the top compression ring. The oil ring goes on the bottom, and the other thin ring goes in the middle. The gaps should be spaced evenly around the circumference of the piston, not lined up with each other.
