YZ450 New piston install on bike?

Another name for it is engine assembly lube. Any auto store should have it.

The manual says to use "molybdenum disulfide grease" on the threads, I called one of the local parts stores and they had no clue what I was talking about. Is there a name brand or some sort of trade name that I should look for? Can I substitute with something else?

Losers. That's what happens when you hire people to sell car parts who know nothing about them. Ask them for assembly lube or an anti-seize compound that's black, as opposed to copper or silver colored.

Yeah a little frustrating. But, the good news is that everything is in and running. Now it is time for a little break-in and then I ready for the trails again! Thanks for the help!
