Try it!

Comments On May 03, 2016:I put one of these in my buddy's 2006 CRF250R and wow what a change! His bike's engine was transformed. Although it was knocking on 91 octane. I believe it worked on 93 octane, but we switched to 110 shortly after install. After the success in his bike I decided to get one for my 2012 CRF250R when it was time for a new piston. I was skeptical as stock compression was 13:1 and this Vertex piston is 14:1. Im here to say these pistons really do make a huge difference. After the install I was very impressed with the power delivery. Feels a lot stronger all through the RPMs. Im not sure if 91 octane will work, I run 110. I have a loudmouth intake, stage 1 cam, CRFs only tune, and a Yoshimura exhaust to compliment this piston, It all works extremely well together. Piston even made my bike sound meaner. My brother is a KTM fan, he likes my engine better. His ideal bike would be the CRF engine with this Vertex piston in his KTM frame.
I will continue to buy these pistons. It came with Cometic gaskets, which are also top of the line.

Outstanding power increase

Comments On Feb 20, 2016:On a 2006 Honda CRF250R this High Compression Piston woke this bike up. Once broke in this bike would compete with any on the track. Would recommend to anyone wanting a little more dependable power from their CRF250R

Excellent piston!

Comments On Dec 03, 2015:I was looking to replace my stock piston during a top end rebuild. I decided to go with the Vertex piston as it had good reviews, and I wanted to go with a high compression piston. This piston checked all of the boxes for me. It is a great part. I've put about 15 hours on the piston, and the engine pulls incredibly well. It went in very easy during install as well. If you're looking for a high compression piston replacement, this is the one to get!

need a little more performance?

Comments On Aug 01, 2013:installed this piston in a stock rmz250 and what a difference. this bike has a lot more power now and rips outta the corners. just from a little bump in compression. the rings also seemed very easy to get installed in the cylinder. I'd give it 6 stars if I could!
