Arias 96mm 12.5:1 piston sets, recently re-designed specifically for the TR1.   The valve cut-aways are deep enough to afford ample clearance for our wildest cams.   A "bare" kit: you provide your own machine work and you must set (if necessary) the ring-end gaps.

Please read the information below the pictures on the page "1065." It could be important. Sometimes I have several sets in stock, both bare and as part of the kits described below.   Lately, I have not been able to keep them on hand: I open an incoming box of pistons, repackage them, and ship them out that same day or the next.   If you want (or need) these pistons, I urge you to order them now and just wait for the next available.   Recently, I had a whole batch sold a full month before they arrived here.   I sell these domestically (for the 920 and 1000 Viragos), and in the Eastern Hemisphere (for the TR1 and its variants).


What you get: two pistons, two sets of rings, two pins, four clips, no gaskets.   This gives you a full-liter (1004cc) twin with a significant compression ratio -- use the highest octane fuel that the station carries.

Keep in mind that these are forged -- they require greater clearance than cast.   They will be noisy until the engine reaches operating temperature.

1004cc With Virago One Thousand Cylinders

A somewhat more durable option is available.   I sometimes acquire Virago one thousand barrels.   I bore these to the 96mm pistons.   As these cylinders have flat decks, they use more conventional, less leak-prone gaskets.   The aluminum cylinder of the Virago is 0.6mm shorter than the TR1.   The compressed gasket is also 0.6mm -- so the compression ratio remains the same. These are shot high-temp black with exposed aluminum fin edges, and heat cured; shot clear, and cured again.   They will not smoke upon first start up. Keep in mind that there are no new barrels; I must acquire used cylinders when they are available.   Then I need to fix all the abuse they have suffered. Salvageable units have nicks and gouges filed and polished off the gasket surfaces And chipped fins built up with epoxy.

Piston kits out of stock; gasket sets a couple of days away; cylinders must be acquired. Machine work done upon your order; about a week turn-around after the pistons arrive here. You may get 1100 cylinders; these were identical to 1000s except for the numbers cast into the aluminum.

Correction: I am down to ONE thousand cylinder and I am having trouble sourcing more.
