I got some pistons from cruzinimage. The price is right, and haven’t heard terrible reviews on them, lots of people use them, and haven’t heard anything about forseti good or bad....both have big bore kits.

But wiseco...... if I had the dollars to spend....

Go the 823 cc Big Bore, its as big as you can go without re-sleeving the cylinders. Plus then if you run with the 900 cams we can compare tuning notes ;)
first cafe build was an incomplete learning experience, more of a test run for the real thing FRANKENHONDA II

Well hello cruisinimage...just had a look at their site, thanks for the lead Nybz.  I can't believe how cheap their piston kits are - have you installed and run them yet?  I can buy all four 0.50mm oversized pistons (with rings) for $120 - that's not expensive at all compared to other kits I've seen on Ebay etc-

They also have the 823cc big bore kit (inc gaskets) for $150???

Yeah, I'm shook.

Still waiting to hear back from the machine shop - if my piston/cylinder gap is golden then all this is moot.  But if not, I think this bloke will soon be getting some of my hard-earned.

GO FORTH! For that price why even bother with stock?

Oh also, I'm gonna dig up the dead horse we already beat about brake fluid. I found this while doing some reading the other day:

Quote
DOT4 will definitely harm paint. DOT5 is silicone based fluid, which is also the one less likely to absorb moisture. Unfortunately Brembo specifically recommends against using silicone based fluids in their products, citing chemical incompatibility with the composition of their rubber. DOT3 and DOT4 are American test performance standards, not chemical content standards. In Europe and Japan (probably the rest of the world) brake fluid meeting DOT3 standards was superseded by European standards years (decades?) ago. Those European standards are what DOT4 is intended to match. Todd#389.

Ha, OK. I have no money to spend of my own stuff so I got $800CAD less a bottle of whisky to get tax free.

Good on ya mate - I'm going to find out about this piston situation and will let you know.  Can't have you crossing that border empty handed...
