    Can I re-use this PV? (01 GP1200R)

    PV dropped into the cylinder and got shaved down a little. I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on if I could/should re-use it.



    I'm getting the cylinder re-plated and a new piston, waveaters in hand, ski's stock. I just want to know if there is a reason to get a new one other than a slight loss of performance at low RPMs. Thanks

    Could be stressed and fail later. Could be fine but used ones pop up from time to time. I think I have a good used one I'll sell for the right price.

    I never thought of the stress aspect, but I guess it thermal cycles a lot. How much for your PV?

    I'll go find it tonight and make sure I have a good one. Call it $25 shipped if it's good.
