New top end honing cylender?

Recommended Posts

A quick ball honing will help ensure a good ring seat. So yes, if you can get to one, do it. You just want to break the glaze, not remove any of the hard chrome liner.

Most local engine rebuilders/machine shops should be able to do it for you for a very small fee, if anything at all.

Thanx, is it absolutely necessary and will it effect proformance and starting at all?

It COULD affect performance and oil consumption if the rings don't seat properly. On 250F, you don't want to lose even a single horsepower due to blowby.

The guy said it was fine. That it was in awsome condition and didn't need to be honed :):p He also said I was doin an awsome job with maintinance. This dealer is soo cool. They give you really low prices and are honest in service. Last time, the guy told me how to put the spring on my rear shock because I didn't know that it came apart. So the new top end will be going in tonight. :)
