Keep in mind that ferrous and non-ferrous metals used in conjunction are not a good idea in most scenarios.

Thanks Dave. So a gasket made for a 74mm bore will be larger than that after it gets compressed.
That means the Kawasaki piston oversize bores must max out close to 73mm. to work with that Kaw gasket...:huh:

Got it!

Take this thread wherever it goes...please!

I would highly suggest e mail Joe Hooper at Pitstop for pistons and gaskets
He is a expert and his prices are the best for MTC kits and many other parts

With this piston upgrade will she be noticeably different from an operation and performance viewpoint?

MTC 1135 piston kit has been ordered, and the cylinder block shipped-out to Pit Stop Performance. :woohoo:

Joe recommended having .120" taken off the piston domes to reduce cranking pressure, but he did not mention what effect that will have on the advertised 10.5:1 compression ratio.

Would anyone care to suggest what the resulting compression ratio might be, and what difference it will make for the engine size?

Why take off .120" on the piston domes? A cyl. spacer do the same effect much cheaper and you can go back if needed.
