XL 1972-1985
Availability: In stock
SKU: Y005832
Manufacturer: Keith black
$235.47
Keith Black piston set is .010 oversize with a 8.2 compression ratio for 1972-1985 XL 1000cc models.The Keith Black 390 hypereutectic alloy is cast in a permanent steel mold which makes it possible to build a light weight piston that makes more power and uses less fuel and lasts longer. Pistons are .010 oversize, for a 3.188"" bore and has a 9:1 compression ratio. The low heat transfer of the alloy keeps the skirts cool so piston expansion is minimal. The combination of a low heat transfer piston alloy and high compression ring placement increases power and economy. The high ring placement alone reduces detonation and increases the top ring temperature. **Note:Run engine at moderate speeds for at least 500 miles, avoiding excessive running in lower gears, in order to properly break-in new pistons and rings."
