What's the best tool for honing?

Recommended Posts

I will do the top end soon and I have the possibility to buy a multiple petal honing tool (I don't know what's the real name :confused: ) with an 400 grit abrasive surface:

So I was wondering if it was the best tool to hone my cylinder or if the ball hone is a better idea (didn't find a place to buy it). :lol:

Wiseco Nylon Brush Hone is the ideal if you want to pay that much.They are $120.00 here in the UK

2nd option is a 320 grit 3 inch Ball Hone.E-Bay has loads of them and I had one shipped to England from the states for $54.00

Do a search on Hone and you will read for hours.

TJ picked up a brush hone recently. Check with him to see how he liked it.

It worked great, I wish they sent me a size smaller though. It was tight.

Not $120 in the U.S., more like $45.

ThrottleJockey,

For which bike? The 250 size is 76-89mm.

They sent me the wrong one and I'm supposed to be getting the correct size.

As mentioned the ball hone is all over Ebay and a good price...

the Brush hone is the very best way to go but the run around 65-80 wholesale.

Sorry Throttlejockey,

I thought after reading your post the brush hones also came in different grit.

dad ordered one for the 250 pn# W6078 and one for the 450 pn# W6079.

The guy at Wisco said they should be here by Friday. Bikes are apart and waiting. Thanks.

Ok, I think I can order a Wiseco Brush hone from a local dealer. Here are the pages:

It's related to Harley Davidson but I guess it's not important. Is it the same brush? What number do I need?

Thank you
