I see that Truett & Osborn sells pistons that are made by another (unnamed) party. I have never done business with T&O, but they seem to have a good reputation. I do not imagine they would sell a bad piston.

I have a set of T&O stroker flywheels and the pistons, but the pistons, with short skirts and wrist pin location changed for the stroke increase, are still the same as stock pistons, as far as relationship of the top of the piston to head gasket surface, I understand the K pistons have a large positive deck and the stock 45 pistons have a large negative deck.

Eastern motorcycle parts sells them. They are wholesale only, so you'll need to go through a retailer. Most of the large parts dealers (J&P, Dennis Kirk, etc.) are eastern retailers.

Download their catalog! They have some items, like K/KH sprocket and pinions shafts, that don't seem to be available elsewhere.

I'm an Eastern dealer and keep some pistons/rings in stock. PM me if you need help ordering.

I've done business with T&O. Actually got them to rebuild and modify a complete engine for me. That engine just ran 3rd in the Victorian Titles a few weeks ago. These guys have a LOT of experience. Visit the shop if you ever get a chance. It's a time warp.
