Is the 2006 Yamaha genuine piston the same as 2007? Is there any difference. I could get a good deal on a 2006 piston kit, but it said to be for 2006. I THINK 2007 has the very same piston and cylinder, but please confirm that!

The cylinders have different part numbers, but it reads as a revision, and since the pistons are the same, as are both the head and base gaskets, I assume they are interchangeable.

The pistons, again, are the same for both years.
