Ok so done a bunch of sh*t so far to my used bike. But I was rebuilding the top end and I broke a piston ring and the piston looks sh**ty.

Mz parts is near me and I have a $12 credit for a broken chain.

What is the difference between the standard piston and this one that accepts a reed valve

Its only $10 more and looks interesting.

if you don't have a reed valve that piston won't work for you. if you do have a reed valve, it wasn't doing anything with a stock piston

No you can't. Well I suppose you could but really you should read up on both to understand what they do, how they do it, why they do it and why you would not want, need, or be able to use both at the same time. Use the search function and just do a bit of reading in the evenings since it's free to read the forums but all these engine parts are not. It will hopefully make your engine a little less mysterious.

Ok well could I just use it for now until i get a reed valve. I just don't want to have to take this engine apart again if I want to upgrade.

If you put a reed valve on your bike I would recommend getting the piston, but if not it's no good for you
A boost bottle does nothing for any HT engine
