He's right. They have different rings. Funny thing I hear is they didn't incorporate them into the 09's. What's even funnier is how as of right now Honda is still saying that there is not a problem. This was known from the beginning, it was even posted before how if you put Pistal pistons in with their own rings magically the bikes wouldn't consume oil. Wonder what's going to happen with all the other problems that are surfacing now. Amazing how people think that because they got 5k miles on the bike and nothing has happened they got "one of the good ones".
