KIWI performance design, we have improved the strength and reduced the noise generated by the piston knocking on the cylinder wall.

KIWI pistons are made in the USA supplied with rings, pin and clips & are priced per piston (per cylinder). 84" pistons come level with the top of the cylinder require the use of 93102 74" heads (no piston protrusion). 88" pistons protrude 1/8" above the cylinders (like Bonne 74") and require the use of 93106 heads. 92" pistons protrude 3/16" above the cylinders (like 80") and require the use of 350016 heads.

KIWI Indian 86516 and 86516-R pistons offer a superior design utilizing the latest engineering design. Never before has so much R&D been put into updating the old, dinosaur Indian pistons. (Diagram "A")

KIWI pistons feature:

  • Solid slipper skirt design increases skirt rigidity (less flexing & increased strength) which reduces piston noise.
  • Skirts have a special cam grind for greater piston stability during all operating temperatures and engine rpm ranges which also reduces noise.
  • Pistons come TIN coated. TIN allows for easy break-in, reduces the chances of seizing, reduces friction and noise.
  • The wrist pin is offset from the center of the piston towards the thrust face (rear) for quieter operation throughout the whole RPM range.
  • The Wrist pin bosses have oil troughs for added pin lubrication and increased life.
  • Low expansion alloy ideally suited for Indian air-cooled engines.
  • Top ring groove is farther down from the top of the piston to keep direct combustion temperatures away from the top ring especially for 80" engines
