Zoran, we need to know what exactly the question is.
Are you looking for the physical dimensions of the ring, trying to match some up?
I think standard rings are still available from Honda.

<t>I apologize for confused question.Yes I have been thinking of Hondas 1.6 litar engine that has 75mm pistons.Do you know if rings will fit our gl1100 pistons?
I was wondering if there is any other supplier of piston rings that offers standard size rings.Over size piston rings are available from Europe and Japan but I have not been able to find standard size from those suppliers.Cost is lower for non Honda rings .Quality is supposed to be the "same "?.As I am writing this letter Strange thing just happened , my wife found supplier on ebay from Japan BUT he does not ship to Canada,and some other countries .
He sells four standard sets of rings for $43 total.Can you believe that ?
I am wondering if any of our GL1100 riders have ordered those rings?
Would some one order for me and ship it to Canada ? I will send money ahead of order ,for parts ,your time and shipping to Canada.
Thank you guys ,
Kind regards Zoran

I've checked two USA sites and they list STD rings as still available.

Part number 13011 463 00

Here's one sit.

Check with KW Honda in Waterloo and see if that # is still available.

I have checked with Honda already and it has been discontinued in Canada , strange isn't it .
