I think he means Greece...  ::)

Try Leda Performance, I know they used to do Wiseco pistons etc...

Or ask Mario at Dirtrider, he might also be able to give you some answers.

So no more parting out the Z?

Anyhoo I bought my Athena big bore kit from Runner, but as far as I know the piston was a Wussner / Wursnerr  ??? same as KTM uses.

Athena is made in Italy although the name might suggest otherwise ;D

Thomas @ Moto Zulu has stock.

http://www.600.xt.ms

Phone & e-mail on the website

OEM Suzuki rings do NOT fit the Athena piston.

Whats happening now that you sold the exhaust?

I have a standard header pipe for you for free, if interested... Or a beer, of course...

You can try the Trail Tech Vector or Endurance, but I dont think there are really other electronic options out there.

The throttle return cable you can have made up by a cable company.

OK, cool...

Are you getting OEM Suzuki crank?

There are other (better?) options like Hotrods, Pro-X which shouldnt be as expensive...
