    Pistons work great for a stock ski or performace. They have a special coating on top of them as well. We've installed a few in some of the skis to see how they would work and so far we have not had an issue with them.

    Shooter.. Are they the same as WSM Platinum Pistons?

    The main difference between an SBT rebuild kit and having factory cylinders renick'd is the fact that SBT sleeves their cylinders which is much cheaper to do. Use the search button and there are all sorts of debates about the differences and how much of a benefit there is between sleeved and plated cylinders

    here a debate................. GPR 2000 rebuild kit installed motor only to find 1 cyclinder was 1mm shorter than the other 2.

    it did run from the launch to the dock, took me 5 days to find what was wrong. then pulled motor and sent cyclinders back to SBT for new kit

    5 days of my time gone!

    i have read more than once that sleeved cylinders are bad because they do not dissipate the heat the same way as a plated cylinder does.

    and as for SPT, just search on their name and see what members here say about them.

    I've used SBT pistons in cheap rebuilds I've done for others. Never had one come apart. They looked to be acceptable in overall quality and appearance. I measured them all, and they were within a half a thousandth of each other. FWIW, I'm running WSM Platinums in my triple piper...2hrs so far, and they are still together.
