2013 kx450f piston

Recommended Posts

Is the 2012 and 2013 pistons the same? I've looked for top end kits for a buddy and can't find anything for the 13. But there's plenty of options for the 12.

Have your local dealer cross reference the part numbers if there the same then yes

Stock pistons are not the same (slightly updated to -13), but they both fit both engines.

yes you can buy it it will work. I just installed a 13 piston in my 09 and it works perfectly! smoothed out the powerband and has more low end in the 09 model. the piston I took out was in perfect shape and still had the coating on it, but had a different piston profile around the top.
