There will be a AE cast somewhere inside the piston skirt, 6/92 suggests Jun 1992 build.

My guess is that they are JCC pistons from Taiwan. They supply most of the Japanese car industy. I'm more than happy with the ones in my Commando and with the supplied piston rings, compression is just too much to kick over after it is warmed up without putting the bike on the stand.
