i just removed my pistons on the clutch side the cylinder was coated with plenty of oil, the other side looked pretty dry. why would one side be well coated and the other side dry? both pistons did look to be in about the same condition. this is on a 03 f7

Did you fog it beofre it was put away? Pour any oil down the spark plug holes?

Or did you just shut it off and walk away? Need info on how it was stored...

What do you mean exactly by scratches? If you can't hook your fingernail in them, don't worry about it. Unless of course there is an above average number of miles on the sled, and new pistons and rings put your mind at ease.
