Please post pics of JE / Wiseco pistons

Trying to decide between JE or Wiseco, specs below, but I can't find a picture of the domes / skirts, manufacturers don't have it, no shops have both on the shelf.

If you have a picture of a Wiseco of JE piston, please post, thanks.

I'm leaning toward Wisecos, as they are lighter and have more material above the first ring land.

Thanks,
Dean


Wiseco ck157:
166 grams
.088 dome rise
.205 to first ring land
2618 alloy

JE 222111;
175 grams
.040 dome rise
.190 to first ring land
2618 alloy

no, jsu ton ATV's or something. best pistons would be CP they are my #1 choice but they dont give a rats ass about the zx-10s for some reason. JE's are really good, they made us some trick custom pistons for franks 1137cc zx10 3mm over bore 3mm stroke and 12:1 compression for nitrous and detonation control. heres a pic of them.

Staying with stock bore or o/s Dean?

CP makes nice pistons and much history in the piston business. Sorry too hear they are not supporting the other brands. A bit pricey, hope too know pretty soon if they were worth it or not finally getting closer to completion i havn't ridden a bike in a year now :( CP normally come hand polished, mine did not but will be coated anyway.

No, 3 mm 1078 cc GSXR 1k. They were not on the shelf items and took about 6 weeks to receive which was a non issue since the prior motor burped and spit pieces of the old pistons.

NM/Methanol are fun if ya know what your doing and don't get greedy hmm good advice i should had thought about that about 13 months ago :(

I just sent an e-mail to CP being a past client inquiring will let you know what I hear back at the least send them a link to here too explain.

Zx-10r are popular and should have solutions available gotta be a market out there

Yep, stock bore Rick. Just weighed the stock pistons, 176 grams bare.

Anyone had a ZX10 crank lightened? I got a stock crank, rods and pistons on eBay for $140 delivered, and may send the crank to Falicon for a once over.

my buddy just got a job at JE so he is gonna hook me up with a set for my 06. I have JE in my el camino and they hold up really well especially after I have sprayed it with a 150hp shot a bunch of times and no issues. CP are really good as well but cost more
