106mm pistons - any interest?

Guys,

I am planning to order a small quantity of 106mm forged pistons from a well-known manufacturer in the USA.
As you all know DR Big standard bore is 105mm.
First oversize 105.5mm piston is available from Suzuki dealers around the world as far as I know.
Next oversize 106mm is discontinued everywhere.

106mm is official oversize for Suzuki so it should work without major modifications except boring and honing the cylinder of course.
The piston will be similar to original, i.e. flat top.

Minimum quantity I can order is 4 pieces. Any of you interested, too?
I expect the price to be around the same as OEM, ca 200.- euros per unit + shipping. Maybe even less. That includes piston, rings, pins and clips. I do not have exact quotation from the manufacturer before I've sent them a sample piston.
Production time will be ca 5 weeks + I have to ship them sample that will take another week maybe.

Any thoughts, comments, questions, interest?
I just need 1 or maximum 2 pistons for myself, so 2-3 will be available.

I will cross-post it to www.drbig.info too.
