Fzr 2009 - - best piston kit ??
something not good happened to my baby...
rpm slow down from 8100 to 7500...
and the sky start run ... 'strange'...
I think... one piston... or ring... has gone...
i will test cylinder compression
i think i have to rebuild the engine...
which piston kit are the best on the market?
i already have in my garage...
carrillo rods and r&d single valve train kit ready to install
so.... what do I have to buy for my setup (see signature)

One thing i noticed that was not on your mod list was a tunnel reinforcement job. The FZR were notorious for cracking them, I would suggest looking into making one, or buying one soon. A lot easier to do with motor out of the ski too.

Wow you need to do a better job checking your A/F readings I cannot believe you blow motor that fast.

If you are using the old Athena, then you can add yourself to a list of people who blew their engines with the old version and original maps. I am on that list as well. Few people warned you about this in your other thread where you were asking about running a stage 3 setup on stock ecu. As far as pistons go, CP pistons would be more reliable in my opinion since they don't expand as much as the wiseco pistons.
