Will a Kitaco 56.5mm stroker crankshaft work with a Wiseco 55mm piston?

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if I can use the stroker crankshaft from a Kitaco 145 SE kit , with a Wiseco 55mm piston if I trim(machine) the piston skirt of the piston? Will I have issues with the top of the piston hitting the head? Would I have to "clay" it to check it out? (credit to gman for the clay idea :thumbsup:)

You would have to machine the bottome of piston so it doesn't hit the crank.

Like I said in my original post, I said I would trim(machine) the piston

skirt(bottom). I was cocerned with the TOP of the piston hitting the head.

Oh I misread it. But it's not going to have issues hitting the head, it's going to be the pockets of the piston not being deep enough. What cam are you running and what valves? A stroker makes the the piston come up higher, but the make a rod that is shorter to compenate for it. The Kitaco cylinder and a stock cylinder are exactly the same hieght, so the only issue you will have will be cam selection.

I have stock size KB valves intake: 24mm, exhaust: 20.5mm. I would like to run a Megacyle 129-x6. Is this possible? Worst case a Megacycle 129-00, (I think this one is very close to the cam that comes in the 145 kit).
