CP Pistons Honda 450R Piston
Where do we start with this one? Sometimes a story develops when we’re on the hunt for parts, this time was no different. As you may know, we’ve been building a 450R project quad on our off time. We began looking for engine upgrades and a piston was the first part on our list. Last year’s 400EX build up used a very high performance piston from ROSS. Naturally we called ROSS first. We were quickly informed that they did not produce a piston for any of the new four strokes but he new some guys that were having good luck with them at CP. We hadn’t heard of CP so we quickly forgot about it. A few days later we were on the phone with Falicon cranks checking on having a crank balanced. When we asked what piston they recommended, CP was again recommended. So we decided to call, two extremely well known companies couldn’t be wrong right?
Right. We were on the phone for no time at all and had a new CP piston being delivered express to our shop. Everyone we spoke to was super nice and knowledgeable, a rarity in this industry. When the piston arrived it was everything we expected and more. It was flawless and packaged very securely.
Not only are the pistons available as a standard replacement, but in over sizes and several compressions ratios in each size. We are so sold on CP we will likely being using their pistons in several other buildups. Check out CP for yourselves by clicking the catalog link to their site or call 949-567-9000.
