    gp1200r cylinders mixed up.

    Normally when i tear down an engine i mark the cylinders "front, mid, rear".
    Buddy of mine teared down his engine but forgot to mark the cylinders , i'm almost sure that it makes no difference witch cylinder will be placed
    on the front, rear or mid of the case unless the pistons match.

    Just to make sure ,can anybody confirm?

    It doesnt matter. They will work on either spot on the case

    Wouldn't the wear in each cylinder be just a little different, so in theory they should go into there prior positions as not increase wear on the others if any existed?

    as stated above it doesn't matter but you cant realy mix them up its easy to put them back the same eg
    center cylinder has studs rear cylinder has the wheel for the power valve motor etc etc

    The powervalves and shafts where removed from all 3 cyl so it was impossible to tell in wich order to replace them.
    The cylinder wear wasn't a issue because we made sure that the pistons matched the correct cylinders.
