suzukird sell pistons in various sizes, suzisport used to sell rebuild kits, not sure if they still do but its worth a look. Failing that you can go straight to suzuki, i dont think they charge silly money for rebuild kits

I recently did a full rebuild and bought Pistons, rings and shell from Johns Foreign Engines (22re.com) and found them excellent to deal with and quite reasonable on price.

Contact Zak on 001 (360) 263-6675 and say you were talking to Dara in Ireland Wink

they seem like a genuine company but its in the us
if your gettin stuff from overseas then try to use a big well known company coz they should do things by the book
why did you want new pistons?
are you going for a higher comp ratio?
if not then whats wrong with the ones you have now?
