    Pistons

    can having 2 oem pistons and 1 pro x piston damage your engine?

    if it were me I'd find someone with a good scale and weigh them also I noticed some pro-X pistons have transfer ports compared to OEM I might not try it in that case ! IMHO

    No, but weight can be a factor always best to balance them. Pro-X and OEM 1200R pistons are virtualy identical. both are made by ART

    As long as they are the same weight I think you'll be good.

    Will the OEM piston rings fit the Pro-X pistons?

    ART pistons make both pistons...weigh them to see if they are cast the same. If one of them weighs more or less, it can affect the balance. I mean even 100 grams can affect it adversely. Weigh them.
