US Chrome and Wiseco piston

Recommended Posts

i just got done tearing everything down to do a top end i was a little nervous cause i was getting some pre detonation right at the end there but i got 40+ hard hours on this piston this is the 2nd piston on the cylinder and gonna be a third......posting some pics to y i send my cyclinder to US CHROME and use weisco pistons...i measured the clylinder walls and they havent moved and are right on the money definatly worth spending the extra cash....not trying to start a piston thread fight.... just showing the results and y i love my RM :bonk::smirk:

well what did you expect??

2 pistons in 40 hours, so it has only 20 hours on it..

and nikasil is meant to last many many years and hours

my pistons take 60 hours of beating, with after 30 hours a new set of rings

guess what, my pistons come out clean too

not one little mark from sand or whatever, but i guess thats because i take good care of my bike ^^

btw i use pro-x, and you can say that 50% of the time i go riding at the sandtrack, and believe me it's heavy sand, so the piston sure takes a beating

good maintenance is the key!
