    why would that be.. i am running 2 sleeved one nicked cause other 2 were already sleeved and re nicked would have cost more than what i payed for ski i (read heat transfer) but i keep a heat temp gun & my hand put on jugs and they all seem to be cooking at the same temp but then again i am not looking for the crown in the lake either just a runabout for the kids

    They run different temps. and the sleeve never put out the power that nic cylinders put because the sleeve never lines up 100% with the ports.

    i have 2each 04 xlt800s. one engine original and the other sleeved,,,,the original engine runs just a small tick faster than the sleeved one,,,,barely any difference because i set the carbs up a little richer on the sleeved engine. i could lean it up a little and match the speed easily.

    Well, since I am not trying to build the fastest thing on the water, I decided to replace all the cylinders with sleeved cylinders. I am also going to go with all new pistons gaskets rings etc....It really just gives me peace of mind that I know I have new items in there.

    So this leaves me with two good nic cylinders that I will be selling with the pistons.
