    Piston ring sizes

    by Sam400 » Wed Jul 29, 2020 12:34 am

    Hi does anyone have the oem piston ring thickness for an 08?
    Just trying to sort a piston/ ring mismatch and the info would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Hi Sam,
    Well I have seen written down that Honda has changed rings thickness several times.
    Rings have tended to get thinner to maintain a seal as power has increased.
    The 2006-2007 rings are 0.72mm
    The 2008-2009 rings are 0.85mm

    Are you using a factory or aftermarket piston.
    If you are using and aftermarket that has been around a while they may have stayed with the thinner ring.

    If you are using aftermarket piston then contact the maker.
    They probably based their piston on a particular year and should be able to tell you what oem rings fit.
