Bruce, I have one in my 250. No vibration issues. It is a lighter piston than stock in the 250 application. I remember typing the figures, but I would hate to repeat them off the top of my head. I felt it was slightly smoother than the stock piston.

The difference in vibration was not great. It felt pretty good with the stock piston. If pinned down I would say it vibrates less with the single ring.

Yes, sadly it was. The "43" has a much more "senior" look than "42" did. What the heck. I long for the relief death will bring. I never did enjoy 42 much. I spent much of the year thinking I was 43 anyway.

I honestly don't no which one vibrates less but I have no problem with the vibration given off by the single ring piston. I do notice that the piston make a little more noise than the stocker while idling. the advantages to the sngle ring would be reduced friction, longer piston skirts for better wear aand sability, and a special coating to control and disperse heat on top of the piston and underneath.

Love my single ring, it has the fast reving action of a top fueler (sort of) when you crack the throttle.

Note:

this faster reving is only noticed at idle when standing still and not nearly noticed as much when actually riding.

Has anyone else noticed this?

I felt like the low end was much faster reving. Almost like unbolting my heavy flywheel. Its a good sensation. The heavy flywheel is still there and all of the advantages.

The piston is a work of art. Wait until I get my lexan cylinder.

I wish one of you guys would invent that.
