    cylinder re-plating?

    i have a 2001 kawi ultra 150. i basically need a new cylinder. however the one i have is not that bad and there is no cracks. so i was wondering what you all think about getting the one cylinder re-plated? i have looked around and i saw a few companies like U.S. chrome, mongoose machine, and millennium tech. with the last doing an exchange program. so i was wondering if anyone has experiance with any of these guys and if any are recomended? and what about the millennim tech exchange? thanks

    Should be fine, they can strip it and renikasil it to match the bore of the other cylinders.

    I had millenium tech do a cylinder for me and they were very good to deal with. No suprises with price or time and the cylinder looked great.

    US Chrome ha done plenty of Hi-Po Merc blocks for us with no problems. I would expext their PWC stuff to be just as good. You can replate yours for what you will pay for a used one and with a re-plate you will beback to new. Mike
