Been away from Yamaha for a few years and was curious if that plastic sleeve that needed drilled out on the inner chamber was corrected or does it still need to be done on the newer yz's/wr's? Thanks.

It's called the free piston. It's the same as it was.

Both Smart Performance and TBT have replacement free pistons that are metal.
