Saw an ad for this company. I guess they're the supplier for MEK. I would assume theyre a reputable place since they work for a factory team. Anyone buy any of their top end kits? I always buy Wiseco for my bikes. How do these compare? Are they forged/cast? Price? I'm close to having to do a full top end on my 450 and thought id give them a try.

In the mid to late 80's I use to street race a 69 Camaro & ran Carrillo rods as they were known for being bullet proof. I found out about a yr. ago that they were making pistons for dirt bikes. They have a good reputation for making a quality product & I'll be running a CP piston myself when it's time for a rebuild on the 450.

Top notch quality. As said above KTM/Husky use them stock in their 4 strokes. I put 92 hours on my FC250 and had nothing but good luck. Replaced it with another OEM as maintenance.

CP is forged and right up there with the best like JE. I think factory KTM and Kawi use them in SX and MX and everyone else uses JE. Wiseco is also forged and are a close third IMO.
