    Polaris MSX cylinder

    Anybody have or know where I can get a cylinder that will work on my 2003 MSX 140? Ebay hasn't had ONE for 2 weeks now so I'm getting the impression that they are kind of rare? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Well when my rod bent it destroyed the inside of the cylinder. I'm going to use my brothers to replace it and send them in to SBT for the cylinder exchange thing. So now I have to find him a cylinder...lol

    It was an entire SBT motor with SBT cylinders all bored 1 over when I got the machine... So I think its my only option to have them freshen them up again. Is SBT really that bad? I've heard pretty good reviews on their motors.

    It just grates that SBT sleeves these MSX 140 engines rather than rebuilding them to OEM specification with Nikasil coated cylinders.

    SBT has been a topic of much debate over the years around here. Opinions do vary.
