Very interesting, I'll keep looking.
I forgot to mention I'm going to run a G3 kit cam initially instead of the G1. I'm going to us an OEM thickness headgasket since these pistons are doing the work and having the thicker gasket will give me some extra margin of safety. I had the chambers cleaned up which should further push the CR down as well. Just waiting for my crank to come home and then I'll start building it up. If my match is correct these parts will have shaved almost 4lbs off of the rotating assembly.Just my humble 2 cent. We also degreed the Gen1 Kawasaki kit Race Intake cam on this bike several times and ended up at 105/102. We used the stock exhaust cam. We also installed the thin head gasket. We had a stock head. We originally tried the 107/104 route but were unimpressed. I know Garth ran the 107/104 with his motor but maybe the 107 works best with specific head work. Again, my head was stock. Excited to see Your final product.
4lbs ? From pistons and rods? I think it is not possible.If my match is correct these parts will have shaved almost 4lbs off of the rotating assembly.
Yes. I'll post exact weights of everything during assembly. The assembled pistons are appreciably lighter than the OEM pistons as well.4lbs ? From pistons and rods? I think it is not possible.
I quess that u could save 100gr from each rod and 40gr from each piston-pin.Thats around 600-700gr thats around 1.3-1.5lb. Is your crankshafton diet too?:grin2::grin2:
Yes, I'd much rather run a thicker headgasket rather than deal with sealing issues. I'm having a little trouble setting the ring gap with these pistons since the pistons are gas ported. There's a ton of info an nuance out there regarding what you can get away with but if set up correctly the effort is worth a decent amount of power.every aftermarket piston ive installed on a ten has a raised piston deck as part of the compression increase. so pth contact will occur with any thin hg. need to measure may even need a .030 as made by cometic instead of the stk .027 head gasket.
