I'm gonna be soooooo pissed if this is the case. I was told by David from dhm the silver ring is TOP,I thought I'd chime in 5 months later.
So David from DHM said the 'BLACK' ring is top and 'SLIVER' is bottom. CJR said 'SLIVER' is top and 'BLACK' is bottom. Weird they're opposites since I assumed they came from the same manufacture. If you're doing the install I'd just make sure you contact either vendors you bought from for more info.
Onto the break in period and ride feel...
After the install I started up the engine 3 times on idle prior to riding. 1st initial warm up (no revs 3-5mins) 2nd start up (revs to 3-4k rpm) 3rd start up (revved to 5-6k and let it sit till 100 degrees+).
The first initial ride to 100 miles consisted of 1/4th - 2/4th varied throttle to set the piston rings in. I never loaded the engine at low RPMs. After 100 miles, I varied the throttle 3/4th - WOT. The bike definitely feels like it has more pep in the low end. I hit around 71 mph for a top speed run, though I could have hit a few more mphs. Standing up riding averaging around 60-65 mph. I have about 400+ miles on the piston, and overall I think its worth the money.
And the black ring is bottom.
