" As you can see, there's a pretty dramatic difference in the fin sizes between an 86-03 and an 04+ cylinder. This affects both appearance and cooling performance. While small fin cylinders can be made to fit onto 04+ bikes, we really don't recommend it as it compromises cooling and won't look right under the big fin heads that all 04+ bikes came with. On the other hand, putting the big fin cylinders onto an 86-03 bike will enhance cooling. Make your own judgment about whether or not that's a worthwhile trade-off for the appearance issue of putting large fin cylinders under small fin heads. On the other hand, if you're updating your small fin heads to big fin versions, going with big fin cylinders to match and improve cooling at the same time is a no-brainer."

Be very careful with this
04 and newer have piston cooling jets and shorter pistons than 03 and earlier
Long early pistons will break the cooling jets

Rocketman's comment is right on the money, the pistons will break off the oil squirters and then it's a full tear-down to fix it.

But also, flat top pistons under your stock 883 heads would result in a compression ratio of about 11.8:1.

So bottom line, the pistons really aren't compatible, and the cylinders are a giant step backwards. I'd pass.

I have small fin on my 2006 from Hammer, being in the firsts customers, I like the look of my engine. Anyways, heat go up and most of it is concentrated at the heads. Pistons are easy to cut; done numerous time on stroked engines.

Give me an angle grinders and here I go.

My brother had a pair of tracker pistons that he was going to use on a project and my father had a pair of 2005 883 jugs in garage so gone down that route
