Gsxr1000 Carrillos for a K3 into K6 engine?

Picked up a good cheap set of rods, what are the options for using them in a later motor?
The rods have 16mm ends & the piston pin holes are 15mm, is the any wrist pin bushes available?, Did i read that you can get STD K6 pistons, with 16mm pin holes?
I've looked on the web but not seen any, thanks.....

You would probably have to order pistons to match
companys that can do in house machining, like JE or Wossner direct, APE maybe

I agree with Maj, although if you are going to be getting custom pistons to suit the rods you have to bare in mind it dose become a very costly game as custom pistons cost that little bit more than a of the shelf part and keeping the specs of the piston just about original will give minimum gains and cost a lot of time and money. I to am going down the road of H beam rods and custom pistons, but the forged internals going into my motor are only there for the insurance and safety of my motor and not for the 3-5 hp gain of lighter and stronger parts.

Perhaps a little more incite into you end game would help to point you in the right dirrection.

Thanks for the input, it's for a turbo build- the K6 rods with the 15mm wrist pin is the weak point.
Would custom made bushes be weak due to them being thick wall?, I note that the stock suzuki jobbies are steel backed items, with a thin bronze layer.

You can get tool steel pins for the 15mm rods, ask the guys at APE
if you have no detonation the 15mm are fine
