    Any reputable shops in the Miami area?

    Hey guys after lots of thought I decided that I want to bore out the pistons to like 1390 cc or something in that vicinity, I live in Miami gardens my question is, does anyone know a place in miami where I could have this done? Also for this type of job what would be like a ballpark price?? Thank you guys

    take it to riva!!! new pistons run around $360, u should also have ur crank balanced and welded, so it wont twist with the extra power ur gonna be making. then u need to pay for the shop to bore ur cylinders and then u need to re nikasil them, so its a lot more than just boring the cylinders and getting bigger pistons, then u will need to re-jet the carbs and tune them( if ur ski has carbs) ( if its FI then u might need to change ur map)all this is gonna be a pretty penny!!! just wondering what other mods u have already, maybe there are other things u can do first

    IMO dont go to Riva... they will probably send it out as they are not really doing 2 stroke stuff anymore

    I would go to Jim in Tampa (Palm Harbor)

    Jim's Performance on the board here

    also I have a nice 1390 set-up for sale
