    Light Honing Cylinder

    I have GP1200R, Can you hone the cylinder if it has light scratch on it ? Would it hurt the Nikisil plating ??? Or is this a bad idea honing the cylinder ???

    If there are scratches in the nikasil, that you can catch your fingernail on, it will have to be replated. That coating is only a 4-5 thou. thick
