Cylinder 2005 and 2006 compatibility

Recommended Posts

I have a swap 2006 cylinder, so i ordered a 2006 piston (:confused:.

My mechanic said it can't fit, the sleeve on bottom is bigger, so cylinder needs a little work on external bottom side of sleeve.

We did the work and now fit...i saw tons of posts telling it will fit!!

after 3 years i decide to swap piston, but i will post the photos because it's amazing how new is the "old" piston!!!

miracles by continuos maintanance on air filter and engine oil...and rmz is a good bike...and my rmz was number sixth, and it suffered the famous problem of crankshaft, but dealer did everything under warranty!

so i will wait for a 2009 with E.I. +F.I. and 5 gears

only intake valves were carbonized and switched with a new pair.

Now bike seems to be as new.
