    Question Rotax 720 rebuild question

    I received a 99 GTI for free. The engine had seized for an unknown reason several years ago. I examined the big rebuilders on line SBT, Full Bore, SES I decided against going with them for purely a $$$ reason. I had a local guy who is alledgely a 2 stroke guru and supposedly it just needs a top end rebuild. My main question is how reliable is overboring just one over and aftermarket cast pistons as opposed to all OEM replacement.

    I was wondering what kind of reliabilty expected life can i expect with one vs. the other?

    thanks in advance.

    Save a dollar now. Spend 10 later..

    Do it right the first time.

    I would look for someone on the forum that has a good rep to look at the ski for you before sinking money with a random person. I have read horror storys on this board from so called “Gurus"

    Depending on your cylinders you have some options. I offer a service where you send your cylinders in, I inspect them. Bore to next size and use OEM pistons if i can, If not i re sleeve your cylinders and then install OEM’s.

    We also have options for high quality aftermarket pistons.

    First thing first i would evaluate the crank as well and ensure its healthy.
