    It is about 55mm from tip to the first right angle bend. It is about 23mm from the case to the shift lever.

    As I recall the overall length may be slightly longer, and it does sit further away from the engine case. However, mine was bent so many times and then re-bent, I have no idea what the stock distances are.

    Np :wave

    BTW

    I just mounted a new shoe to the rear. I replaced the IRC GP-1, which I like very much with the much cheaper Shinko SR244. I'll let everyone know what I think. I do notice their tread pattern is slightly different, mostly on the edge. It also has longer lugs, by about 2mm. They are both rated as 5.10's, but the Shinko is about 2-3mm narrower. They also have a more rounded or oval profile. They look good, but time and riding will tell.

    Thanks for the backup on my choice of piston that makes me feel better. Do you think the ceramic coating will help at all??
