Good bang for your buck.
I have used these kits for years and have nothing but good results. They are reliable, easy to install, and add some good performance for the cost. I will always go this route as opposed to OEM.

Cylinder Kit was Streight Forward
Was easy to install, except for the wrist pin retaining clips which always tend to be a bear. I now have my compression back and my RZR runs like a smashed house cat. I have have about 700 miles on the new top end and everything is working great. It was cheaper than having the cylinders taken in and bored and I didn't have to wait.

Thanks Cylinder Works.

Try it!
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
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!
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!
