Any reviews or experiences with IMD Pistons? Wiseco is out of stock for the 1978 DT125 OS that I need. Any info appreciated. Thanks.

I have not tried IMD...  hopefully someone here has. 

Why don't you check with Enduronut and get a genuine piston and rings set?

2 different cylinders to be rebored, one piston needs to be 57mm the other 57.50mm. I will check though. Thanks!

Enduronut saved the day. He has a 57mm Yamaha. Found a 57.50mm kit on eBay and ordered it, be here around Dec. 7. Also found OS rings for Enduronut's piston. 
Got the case halves back together (yea YamaBond #4!) and neutral not only locks in, but the neutral contact is in the proper place. Still missing 1 60mm M6 screw, then I can install the magneto plate and flywheel. Thanks to everyone for the tech advise!
