    Need Advice

    Hello all, first let me say that this forum is awesome and very informative. I try to use the search button as often as I can I'm ready to put my top end together (03' 1300r) and just want some clarification on some things from the experienced/pros. I'm keeping her stock for anyone thats wondering. So here goes

    1st: I'm sure these cylinders are fine but what do you guys think of them? I plan on buying 3 pro-x piston kits for them. The scuffs are not deep at all, can't even feel it with your finger nail. I've read somewhere in another post that WFO recommened to use scotch bright pad i think to clean up the sleeve.






    2nd: The powervalves, they look mint to me, what do you guys think? Are they interchangeable meaning that it doesn't matter which cylinder they came out of and I can put them in any cylinder?



    3rd: I've searched and could not really find any perticular brand that you guys use so I bought this. Will this be fine to seal gaskets and all that?


    I found this grease all over the reed cage and noticed that its green and the grease I got is white. Is that a problem?



    Also where do you guys buy your pro-x piston kits from? Thanks for any help guys!

    You need to get the cylinders honed, especially if you and putting new pistons and rings

    Powervalves are fine, and are interchangeable
    Get some waveeaters for the linkage

    That grease is fine

    I have some ProX piston kits

    Can I get that done at any machine shop cause I have read on here that a certain stone (forgot what it is) needs to be used.

    Can you send me a pm on the price of the kits please. thanks
