This is what I mounted last year. It's claimed to last 2.5-3X longer and some PC800 riders claimed to get 25,000 from his. I don't have many miles on it yet, but so far it's been great.

Good to hear the upgrades worked for you.

What's different about the new piston? Is it the same size, but increased compression?
