MTC Kawasaki Z1 KZ900 KZ1000 Big Bore Piston Kit 1015cc
PIT STOP PERFORMANCE Kawasaki Z1, KZ900 & KZ1000. New MTC Engineering Big Bore Piston Kit, 1015cc, 70mm. This listing is for a complete MTC Engineering High Performance Piston Kit. It's official designation is PSP-MTC-K1015. The dome on this piston is exactly one half the height of the dome on the standard MTC-K1015 piston. This smaller dome was designed by PitStopPerformance. Com to lower the cranking compression of the motor when used with stock camshafts. What is more important to the rider of the motorcycle than compression ratio is the cranking compression with whatever camshafts are installed. When a camshaft with longer duration is installed the cranking compression of the motor will be reduced regardless of the type of piston installed. Com will rate our KZ pistons according to the standard cranking compression expected with a particular set of camshafts installed. The PSP-MTC-K1015 piston kit is intended to be used with stock camshafts and the advertized cranking compression will be based on that application. This piston kit has 10.5:1 cranking compression when used with stock camshafts. These pistons are manufactured in Cocoa Florida using the highest quality aluminum alloy. Each piston is subjected to a battery of quality control checks to assure uniformity and high quality. Some of the world's fastest motorcycles are equipped with MTC Engineering pistons. This MTC Engineering high performance piston kit contains the following: (4) 70mm aluminum forged pistons, 10.5:1 cranking compression ratio when used with stock camshafts.
(4) Hard chromed wrist pins. (4) Sets of 70XC rings.
(with three piece oil ring) (8) Teflon buttons sized for a 70mm bore. (buttons take the place of circlips) (1) Cometic two piece fiber head gasket with o'ring.
(1) Fiber cylinder base gasket. This is every part required to update your tired top end. If you have ever seen what a dislodged circlip can do to a piston and cylinder, you would never use them again. Your cost includes everything shown in the picture. The pistons are a newer variety and the head gasket is fiber instead of copper.
