Because they come with new pistons.
They don't call me Ironhead Rick just because I'm "hard headed"

Yeah I know that! But pins are available for almost everything else? I have a late crank in a shovel case , I had my pistons honed for the .792 pins, but cannot source pins. I have one new 22764-83 and I went thru my old piston sets and found a good used one. they both measure out the same  ,so I am going to run them...

Neither Jims or S&S offer them?

VTwin has them listed 11-0871

I have a pair of Wiseco S534 2.2 inches in length , stock are like 2.8 , Yeah they are listed as fitting evo's but they are for short skirt forged slipper pistons from wiseco that fit evos. V-twin 11-0871 are not available at all the places I tried to buy them...

There are many companies that manufacture wrist pins. Get outside of the Harley aftermarket and look in the automotive market. Aside from simple length and OD, wrist pins are available with different IDs. There are several applications for the different weight wrist pins, but perhaps the most common is to correct balance without removing the flywheels from the case when using heavier pistons than what the crank was balanced with. Call Ron at Axtell. He can set you up with any size wrist pin and they will be much better than anything from a Taiwon Ted.

Zippers show them, but they know what they want for them!

Summit racing shows a few different lengths.
