You are incorrect here, Sir. Some OEM & aftermarket suppliers offer in increments of 0.25mm....especially in racing-specific engines. I know this to be true of the Suzi PE-175 - the Yamaha IT-175's ISDE arch-rival. It's worth a look-see in Yamaha's FREE online lookup to be sure.
*EDIT* I took a quick look on "Yamaha-Motor.com" and saw that the 1982 model had 4 oversize piston kits available, in +0.25, +0.50, +0.75 & 1.0mm. I had not noticed the OP's model year, but I suspect that the same pattern follows for most years, based on my past professional experience with Yamaha.
