Piston for Husaberg FE 650cc 2005

This weekend my piston broke( ) , so I am in despered need of a new one...

Does anyone know a brand who manufactures a perfect piston with good quality and fair price? Or should I just buy a new husaberg one (wich only lasted for 60 hours...)

If possible I would buy one with better throtle response, but prefer not to change anything else.

your opinions please...

I would go with the 470 piston, never had any mishaps with standard Husaberg pistons.

My husaberg FE 650 '05 had 60 hours of operation (3000km).
I ride my supermotard 80% on normal road, 15% circuit and 5% off road.

I regurarly change oil and filters (as I help out in bike shop in the weekend...)
Driving style is normal to a bit agressive. Pulling a wheelie is still fun hé...

I weigh over a 100 kilos so I guess the bike is sometimes put up to the test.
Last time I filled here up I used super 95 instead of 98, but all of my husa friends are using both (at the same gas station) so no issue in there...

470 piston is also 100mm but has more material on top.

please read the owners doc under tuning. not an enormous amount on 650s but it does mention that plus con rod lengths for you to think about.

What would the effects be if I install the 470 piston and where can I find the part number?
(It is a original husaberg part wright? And the difference is 3mm)
Original con rod must do because new one is to expensive for me...

the piston has nothing to do with throttle response by the way.

yes it is an OEM part.

go into downloads and go back to 2001-2003 parts books. you'll see the part number in there.

you'll gain everywhere but especially at midrange.

Will the 470 piston raise his compression?

yes

and don't ask by how much - i don't know! fact is that 650 compression is nothing like claimed but with the 470 piston it may make it coime true!
