Do a web search for JE pistons, they make them 2mm over. You'll need to have your cases disassembled and sent to Millenium Technologies for the boring/replating.

The good people at Millenium were telling me 4mm is the biggest you can go on the R1. I had mine punched out only 2mm. I wanted to keep some reliability.

Bone, did you ever find out why your overbore engine did'nt work? I recall you saying you went for a drive and the engine felt strong at first but it failed afterwards? Ever find out why?

Yeah, the guy assembling it broke the oil rings on 2 cylinders during assembly. I assembled it myself this time and it's all good.
