They weld onto the bottom of the piston skirt to cover up a transfer port. Apparently the port takes some of the charge away from the top of the cylinder. (from what I have heard). It worked well on the 01's and 02's. As for the newer mills, I think BJ or Cudney or even Kelsy (RKTek) have pistons that would work better.
