Piston preference?

Anyone have any views as to piston preference?

Any ones better then others in performance/price?

Wisco vs OEM as a example. Any to avoid?

While I'm here, although I have searched the crap out of this, there does not seem to be any draw back to having your cylinder re coated / bored by a reputable shop, vs buying a new one from Yamaha, correct?

Wiesco and pro-x have always been good in my book good quality.

You could go for a slightly higher compression so that you'll still be able to use pumpgas but get some performance gains.

If you stick with you current cylinder id go with a pro-x with a very slightly larger bore. In most situations id go for a bore/replate, this is much chepaer than buying a fresh cylinder from yamaha.

OEM all the way! :thumbsup:

NORMALLY I'm all over getting all the performance, but honestly, not needed here. I'm 40, and this is my first off road bike really, picked it up last year.

It's a 04 Canadian model, Air box cut outs, etc, with JD Jetting, Hotcams, and a FMF PowerCore Ti, and honestly, I do not think I'll EVER need more power then the thing has now. It hits hard, and fast, and just keeps pulling.....:thumbsup:

I'll probably go OEM Piston, and have the cylinder plated.

I'll have the cylinder plated.

If your just doing a rebuild, all you need to have done is a quick hone...no need to replate :thumbsup:
