$100 for a Big Bore Kit???

I was seeing Niche and Namura (pretty sure they are the same) Big Bore kits for the DRZ on ebay for around $160 to $200 which is pretty cheap, but then I found some kits for the LTZ400 for $100!!!

Are the cylinders interchangeable? Do you guys think is the same compression ratio than the DRZ? I have zero knowledge about the LTZ.

I already have a FCR 39 from a YFZ450, looking for a BBK and stage 2 hotcams for my next upgrade.

The cylinders and pistons are the same between the bike and quad.

You should buy that and let us know how it works.

I wouldn't put on mine anything that's too secret to put a name in an advert.. if there is one.. :wacko:

If anything brakes off of it you can loose much more than your 100$

I'm still worried about the compression ratio been too low since it's advertised for the LTZ.

The kit looks exactly like the the namura/niche kits (which are probably no brand chinese made) and both have been around for a while, with people saying that they work fine.

Assuming it's the same as most other 94mm pistons it will be stock compression ratio with the 3 layer and have "E's" ratio (12.2.1) if you run a single layer.

I was being sarcastic. Yanka is right, if it doesn't hold up you risk destroying the motor.

Do it right with a Cylinder works kit and Web (536/540) cams.

Pass on Namura ...imo 

Cylinder works kits are almost $600 on ebay :facepalm:

The link in the first post now shows $167 . So $100 was a mistake?

Not a mistake they raised the price, yesterday was around $106. Also their DRZ kit was $167 and now is $220. It should a single seller with multiple accounts since all the kits have the same price now.

You're not looking hard enough. Should be able to find one for less than $500 easily

You want to risk your engine to save $300?

I guess I'm slightly off. I looked not long ago and prices were in the $450 range, now it's $503.

I bought my kit 3 years ago from this sell for $400. Screenshot_20170914-094613.thumb.png.39f2a4727376e9b040c104b06e443068.png

 $503 is for the standard bore the big ones are no less than $580. I have an extended warranty on my bike (wife idea) so if the engine blow or something I could always put the oem cylinder back and take it to the dealer imo.

I really don't want to put a chinese cylinder on my bike but I have been seeing people using namura and niche kits without many issues.

Damn, I need glasses

if you keep scouring ebay routinely you will eventually find a good deal, I got a CW for around 330 and my Athena for under 500

It's not going to work putting the stock cylinder on if the cheap, cast , Chinese piston explodes.
If you buy a cheap kit, at least get one with a name brand forged piston. You CAN buy those for around $400 still.

You're right if I can't find a reasonable priced CW I'll probably go with the brand name piston kit.

When did you get it for $330? new? $400 is reasonable but $580 is pretty hard to swallow. Specially with the chinese kits going for $160.

$400 savings could cost you $2000 or more. Is it worth it? The stock piston is forged. Stressing the engine with weaker parts is asking for disaster.
Not to mention the quality of the gasket used. A Cometic bigbore gasket kit that comes with the "expensive" kit is $40 on its know.

If I can't find a better priced CW kit this is probably what I'm gonna get.
