Boring the 929/954?
I want to bore my 954 1mm.
I know it can be done as several companies make +1mm piston kits for the
929 and 954.
So, I requested a price for re-plating the cylinders locally.
The response I received this morning:
" I believe the CBR954RR has an Alusil bore. If this is the case they are not suitable to just bore and coat with the our coating. Firstly we need to manufacture thin wall alloy sleeves, bore the block,install the alloy liners and then coat and hone them. The approx cost to do this modification could be as high as A$4000 depending on the block casting. It is a very time consuming mod and the materials are not cheap."
Before I ask them what the hell they're on about is anybody aware of a 929 or 954 that has been re-plated regardless of whether they've been bored?
Does anybody know of somebody willing to simply re-plate the bores for me?
