    Piston replacement(best ones)

    I'm going to purchase new pistons for my rebuild this week and want to know which are the best ones to buy that will give me stock own performance and lifespan. Yamaha dealer wants 530.00 for a complete set of 3 and I've seen WSM's and other on here for alot cheaper. Which is the right way to go? It's 2004 xlt1200.
    Thanks,

    Cisco

    Shop around they can be found much cheaper.

    As far as what to go with everyone is going to tell you go OEM or PRO X. Never heard anything good about WSM or SBT. Wiseco's need to be set up right or you stick a piston especially if they are not warmed up. So not very rec friendly.

    call scott at millenium tech. he was much cheaper on oem or prox. he hooked me up big time on the prices for parts and renicks/welds. i went pro x due to prior history of them being great pistons for me in 2 stroke motors
