R6 piston head

I'm rebuilding my 05 r6 and i was curious if anyone uses some kind of lube directly on the piston head after removing all the carbon deposits. I'm guessing some kind of waxy layer to help distribute the combustion heat/force on the head.

Polish the piston dome that will help n take all the sharp edges off the combustion chamber so no hot spots are able to ignite.

Re: R6 piston head

Anything you put on there will burn off/turn into carbon deposits again. When I replaced my head gasket on my truck I just wiped the pistons/walls with a clean rag soaked in lightweight engine oil.
