Have used them were actually pretty good although the sizes were bait odd! So have the barrels machined to the individual pistons

Looking at the details - they have been a member since Jan 28th 2007 based in USA, but if you click on 'go to shop,' it's in Japan. Mixed feedback but more good than bad. Looks like you'll have to be the one that tells us how good he is!

Have fitted a set to an A ive just finished .Perfect fit , running great at 125+psi on each cylinder.
My only suggestion would be to use genuine suzuki wrist pin spring clips as the ones supplied seem a bit flimsy.
Price is right and delivery is quick as well.

I bought a set last year for £70 inc p&p and was very impressed with the quality, unfortunately I should have done the rebore before I bought the pistons cos the rebore needed second oversize and cruzinimage only sell first oversize, so thats something else for my future spares collection. However, Baz sorted me out with a set of second oversize pistons and rings (cheers Baz) and he's the guy who can give you all the technical info on cruzinimage pistons, I believe he bought a set and had them thoroughly checked out for size and quality. Cheers Steve.

I've bought and installed four sets now (one set for a GT500) - as mentioned previously by Mark, I also toss the gudgeon pin circlips they supply and use Suzuki ones. I have also bought their fork tubes/stanchions for the J/K series (fit perfectly by the way) plus a few other bits, and I always buy their gasket sets as it is the most complete one I've found.
