Late model pistons in '72 DT2
Recently a seller on Fleabay got me all gooey when he suggest in his add that '77 pistons and rings would work with DT's all the way back to my DT2. He also mentioned the later piston having the extra Keystone ringset as a big benefit.
All this sounded ok so far, but i wanted to know if anyone here has experience chopping and changing pistons combo's in these lovely little stinkwheels?
here is the message i sent to Enduronut, and in case he comes looking i will post up the original Ebay Add that got my attention

Dylan from Australia here. Im rebuilding my first two stroke and it happens to be a '72 DT2.
I asked the question about late model pistons and compatibility with the earlier DT2 and was pointed in your direction for clarification.
"There can be a lot of crossover on the pistons. The best place to get good information is to send a message to Enduronut who is our resident piston expert."
The add that got me thinking reads like this;
"BRAND NEW OLD STOCK / OEM NOS ITEM
Yamaha Piston and Ring Set STD Part Number 2N6-11610-00-00 & 2N6-11631-01-96
Fits The Following Models: Made for 1979 DT250F
Mechanically also will work on the below models: 1972-73 DT2 DT3
Difference this had has keystone rings on top and bottom. So really this is a much better set up ."
Curious as to your thoughts!
