? about E-bay big bore kits-not Athena

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had an experience with this one? Looks like the cylinder is plated, not lined but I don't know about the piston. Piston actually looks like the crown has the friction reducing coating on it too. Can't find any info about it...

I would say that you should do a search here and see what other have been running. There are a bunch of threads about it.

I would stick to what has been working here, mostly Athena and MT.

Stay away from anything iron sleeved or not plated.

It's a Cylinder Works kit , it's the same company wich makes HotCams and HotRods . Seems like a quality product , the piston i think is Wossner .

I 'll probably buy one of these when i 'll go for a big bore .

Well, I guess that I will be the first to try it out and report back. I bid low and won at $419.99 plus $22 to ship. I thought the same thing about the CW cylinder and went to the piston website and it looked good. I will agree that KWS knows their shit on the road race bikes. I have ridden two of Kevin's KWS 1000's on the track and they are a handful:eek: I did not know that MT did this much work on the dirt bikes too until I got my DRZ. PS-Kevin's dyno is little optimistic:thumbsup:

Here are some pics of the kit. The top rings were already at .015 end gap so I left them alone. Kit went in easy. The kit only comes with an sm base gasket so I cut the rivets out and only used one layer. It does not come with any instructions nor does it list anywhere what the ring end gaps should be. I was going to use .012 but like I said it was already at .015

I did not look and see. I did measure the pistons with my super accurate tape measure:thumbsup: The stock piston is roughly 89mm and the new one is 93mm so it is about 4mm difference.

It wasn't obvious if it was stamped into the cylinder. Unless it is stamped into the two small raised circles on the front side of the cylinder it is not on there. I'm not at home right now so I can't look and see. I don't see why someone would look that close at a bike that is 400cc from the vin number but I don't know what they do over there:ride:
