Yeah, Hap Jones is an old name in the business.
I think your talking about 12'th over, which would be 3mm oversize.
It will be the biggest available, and will preclude any further boring in the future, if it's needed, since there's no meat left in the cylinders when you're done.

I only want to know if their work well on these bikes, compresion with this pistons it's ok?.
The cilinders it doesn't matter like finding 1mm overboard it's difficult and they are really expensive.

They should work ok - the compression would only be affected if the piston "dome" shape is substantially different.

I just wanted to caution you that no further overbores will be possible in the future......

You can always shrink out the liners and fit new ones from LA Sleeve.
