Default Pros/Cons about LLOYDZ High Compression Pistons

I am considering some upgrades to my 2013' XC. It already has aftermarket pipes and a Power Commander V (PCV) controller and I want to add more power (more get up and gone type power). So, I plan to put in LLOYDZ VM1 TOUR CAMS and some of his other performance parts because they are highly recommended. Folks here at VictoryForums talk about all the parts I'm GOING to install, such as, the VM1 Tour Cams, the Adjustable Intake Air Valve, the Adjustable Timing plate System, the High Flow Air Filter and the Quarter Turn Throttle Clip but, there are no searchable comments or concerns about adding LLOYDZ's High Compression PISTONs (IE the 11.0:1). So, I need to ask....What are the pros and cons to upgrading my 2013' 106 XC engine with LLOYDZs pistons in respect to the engine and overall bike (IE trans, drive train, battery, frame, etc?

Please: Factual help preferred but, opinions are also welcome.

Thanks so much!!!

I can't provide any personal insight as to performance but I can state that the bike will take the pressures easily. The guys at Parkland in Red Deer Alberta were designing their own cams and installing high compression pistons in the early 90's and I've heard nothing bad about them. I did talk to a couple of people that had gone with the mods a couple of years afterward and while they still liked the performance, I do not remember if we discussed their driving style. Polaris offered resistance to their mods at the time but Parkland got some excellent results long before the manufacturer even considered such changes.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Give me a call at the shop....352-215-3253. The only downside is that you must be patient with these Pistons. The engine can be as reliable as stock, but a good warm up procedure becomes critical

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

If I were throwing that much into it, I'd go the little extra and get the 116 big bore. You are buying pistons, cams, most likely upgrading clutch, dropping motor. Big bore shouldn't be much more

In an X bike the difference might not be as great as you think

Very interested in this statement .. my brother has been looking at doing the 116" kit but is having a hard time stomaching all the additional recommended additions. Both him and I already have Lloydz Gen III, Air Cleaner, ATS, IAC, and he has the VM1-DR cams (which will be going in mine shortly).

Are you sort of getting at the fact that going with the high compression pistons over the entire 116" kit may be a substantial gain in power with a substantial decrease in cost?

If it is too much to really get into here, I'll call you at the shop, but figured others may want to know more about this statement

EDIT: Or was your statement strictly geared towards cost?
