    Call me crazy but I would file it down and run it. I don't think it will last too long though, dammage is done and the rest of the cylinder dosen't look that great. So $225 (or whatever it cost) now or crank, cylinder, cases.... whatever else it takes out when it fails again.

    I think as long as the ring don't pass that break it should be ok. IMO.

    There was a problem with the crank. Lost the bearing, so I guess the rod bouncing around caused it. I am having the cylinder resleeved. Now it is a SBT top end. they are resleeving and it comes with a piston. I have another question. The 1 and 3 piston/cylinders have about 30 hours on them (SBT.) Now all the cylinders should be the same sleeved, pistons size and make. Pros/cons of just replacing that one piston and cylinder. I read somewhere heat distribution will be different between pistons and cylinder. One being new and tghe other 2 used. I was going to go Pro X with all 3. However summer is running out and cost is a factor. SBT is said to not be as good as OEM or Pro X. I thinking if tghere is no problems, air leak or carb issure. i should be fine with SBT and jsut replacing the one setup.
