The piston pin is the same, rods diffrent, stroke about the same so the pin offset should be exactly what we want. No idea about heights though.

I'd love to build my 999cc in to a 1180 here!
Yes about the gyro effect - Doug Domokos, the Wheelie King, put electric motors in his front wheels to keep them spinning for his epically long monos.

Haven't looked at pistons yet as we're waiting to hear from Cometic. One of our requirements was not boring the cases which would massively complicate the whole thing.
