It is possible to use motorcycle pistons in a car?

if they fit and have the right compression of course.

I have heard people talk about doing it, but never actually seen it done. I can't really see why not, although they are typically much lighter weights which can create issues.

I just bought some 4agze toyota rods that are heavierthan gti rods so lighter pistons maybe can compensate a little.

Also I'm in the search for motorcycle pistons specs...

Found some suzuki motorcycle specs:

A list with some usual bores on suzuki motorcycles. note that for the same engine there are more than one bore, possibly the smallet is standart and the ohter ones overbore

there is a honda xr ( dont quote me but i think it was an 88 400 ?? ) i saw with very similar piston specs, i think i saw it on the wiseco site. how ever they are hellishley expensive, 250+ a piston ( NZD ) as opposed to $60 for a whole set :P

One thing to beware of is that the skirt on the bike piston may not be deep enough for use in an engine with a much longer stroke.

Hey guys,

I had G13B 5 years ago using Yamaha V-Max pistons in my ice racing car.

Now, in my Swift GT daily driver, which I also use for track days, I have Kawasaki ZX-11 76mm pistons. I run this engine for more than 1 year. With a lot of other mods (stroked crank, bigger valves with 5 angles, 50mm TB, aggressive cams... A lot of torque! :twisted: I love it.

Philippe

can i get some more info on this which you are talking about?
im looking seriously into putting in low comp pistons that are very strong. im interested in larger pin size for added strength and where it is closer to the top of the piston that a stronger and maybe longer rod can be unsed.
thanks, clauce B
