Just wondering if anyone has a story to tell about these rings:

79-82 KAWASAKI KZ1300 STANDARD PISTON RINGS 62mm 6RINGS INCLUDED 11-KZ1300PR

I've used a different aftermarket set way more expensive then these. If they are good, it would be an affordable purchase!

Don't know about the rings specifically but I know of lots of 80's DOHC Honda folks that have successfully used the inexpensive Curiseimage piston kits (which presumably include these rings)

They are replacement rings for the 1370 kit they sell. I had to buy a complete spare set of 6 rings because I broke one of the compression rings in my 1370 kit. I had also sent one of my spare sets of rings to a guy in the states who had also broken one of his 1370 kit rings.

So, they don't fit on a standard bore, right?

The EBay listing you show is the right fit for a stock cylinder. The same supplier also sells a 64 mm overbore piston kit with 64mm rings.

Two different answers, but the title says 1300. The 62 mm sounds right, I think I will go with KB on this.
