Ouch.  I'd like to have a spare......but for $200 I'd settle on 5 Meteor 281XP piston kits instead.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

I think the price is because they are used for the 5ci racesaws.   Same for 2100 one for 6ci racesaws.

There is a 181 thin ring piston bidding off on Ebay.  Also a NOS 2100 piston.  Don't remember ring size  was $225.00 IIRC.

I'm high bidder on the 2101 slug for now, but my low bid doesn't meet the reserve.  Whoever  I outbid had a really low max bid...
