A Little Compare and Contrast

On one side is an aftermarket race piston for a modern Kawasaki ZX6 (600cc inline four), and on the other, you guessed it, is a piston from the Smart CDI Diesel (800cc triple). The smart piston is actually a smaller diameter than the Kawasaki despite being from a motor that displaces 200 more cc’s with one fewer piston. It’s all down to the very short stroke of the Kawasaki (46.5mm) and the longer Diesel (79mm).
