Did you guys notice the rev boost on the 562 compared to the 555 not having that feature?

I went back and listened several times and it happens pretty quick. Almost like an old analog tachometer needle over running the actual rpm. It doesn't stay up there at the highest rpm but a second.

The 555 does not rev as high or fast.  That is all I can say for a fact.  I need to get the diagnostic tool on order.

Pictures of 562XP cylinder/piston on the left and 555 cylinder/piston on the right. Notice the difference in the height of the Transfer covers.

While it has been discussed elsewhere that it is not cost effective to buy a new 555 and convert it into a 562XP . . . .

It is cost effective if you have a used 555 that has to have the bearings replaced and the case has to be split anyway. Then you may as well add the full circle crank pieces and transfers from a trashed 562 cylinder.

It is not cost effective on new saws - looks like there are more differences than what was known earlier. It has happened before that the replaccement parts show in the IPLs are the same, while the originals are different!   ;)

The 562xp sure mods well. I can't believe how well the autotune compensates.

Well, i pulled the trigger on one today.  Quite anxious to see how she compares to the 555 I had.  I believe she will outshine her.  As she should.  As advertised.   8)

I just finished welding the muffler back together on another one. These saws are hot right now. I wish I had ten sitting on the shelf. :)
