Are you planning to re-use those pistons?:laugh:
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

We LOL's when we saw that! Not unlike what we found on The Wounded Z, a '74 barn/outdoor find stored 30* years in the PNW. It took us seven hours to get the jugs lifted off of one particular piston in similar condition to the rusty #1 enough to push the piston pin out from under the sleeve. A press was needed to push the piston the rest of the way out.

Do we see here cutting the domes out with a holesaw? Interesting concept if so, and ingenious!

Piston cylinder clearance exceeds limits.
