    I just bought a set of Endyn/Wiseco pistons and there was no documentation included with them about the honing pattern for their rings. Does anyonw know what it is?

    Will do, what ever brand comes with that piston package. It's not marked anywhere.

    Most Moly rings use a cross hatch pattern, any of the softer rings I don't belive matters.

    all i have heard and read is that honda motors dont like crosshatch hones, they may burn oil, just go to an auto parts store and buy a hone, they are like 20 bucks and go on a drill.

    Stock Honda Rings require a 60 degree hatch, Total Seal require a 30 degree hatch. I don't know if honda uses Moly rings or not.
