Which pistons do I want for a 9.8:1 compression, given stock '06 heads, cometic .030 gaskets, and 37g cams on a 95" bb?

It's a softail that probably isn't going over 6200 rpm? Assuming you are going with flat top pistons, you probably won't hit 9.8 without milling the heads. At 9.8:1 CR and less that 6200 rpm's why not use SE cast pistons?

Sorry I can't answer your question on the part number.

Wiseco flat tops part # k1719. Kit incluces top end gaskets. Heads need
to be at 81 cc for 9.8:1 with .030 head gasket. Mine needed to be milled around .030" +/- to get to 81cc. (one slightly more then the other to get them =)

I have a buddy that knows a guy, so I can get the wisecos at cost :)

It is a '06 softail, and while it won't go above 6200, it will probably come close often.

SE pistons are about $105 ordered online. I prefer to pick parts for the application rather than the cost... FWIW, I wouldn't uses the wiseco's if they were free unless they were being used for the correct application.
