Hard to tell. Might be able to call wiseco and get the measurements.

Not a lot of options for that bike. Probably why you don't see many around anymore. I've read that Wiseco will custom make pistons for about $175 a piece, but they need a min order of 10. If you could find 10 people that still owned one of these dinosaurs, ... more »

Didn't the ISDE have an adult 80 class at one time? I remember seeing a few Euro brand full size 80 enduro bikes back in the day.
