Default Boss vs teknopower Rods

Hey guys,

I am needing to know if the new TeknoPower rods will fit in the Boss Tuned on-road engines? Are they all the same. Ninja, Falcon, TQ, GRP etc...

Thank you

The GRP made Ninja, Boss and Falcon engines all share the same rod.

The GRP Tuned line and it's follow ups (TQ, Tecnopower, G5) share the same rod aswell but it's not compatable with the older GRP engines (Ninja, Boss, Falcon). The crankpin of the older GRP engines is slightly smaller
