New pistons for the MBX6 series: 5x 1.35mm tapered

Mugen Seiki has released a new set of pistons. The size of the holes are the same size as on the normal white pistons, but the new pistons have tapered holes. This means that they should give a faster rebound while maintaining the same damping characteristics.

      Hi Denis,

      If you want a faster rebound, than the tapered side should be facing the A arm (tapered side down). This position is great for bumpy and low grip tracks.

      If you want a faster compression (this is usually not wanted), the tapered side should be facing the shocktower (tapered side up)
