    Question To sleeve or not to sleeve that is the ?

    Hi I am looking for some advice and personal experiance i have a GP1200R and have managed to score the middle cylinder when the ring broke (my ski has 112hrs) my questions are who has experiance with sleeved cylinders and have the had a good or bad experiance and did they just do one or all and did it last the other alternative is to remachine the damaged cylinder and get it recoated (not cheap) also does anyone have an opinion on if i should change the crankshaft or not.

    Welcom Yaman!Its not advisable to sleeve one cyl.The sleeve will take volume away from the transfer ports.Your best bet would be to send it to US Chrome to be repaired and re-nickasiled then honed to fit a new piston,then youd know you were good.Another alternative is to by a used cyl. to replace it.I would have an experienced tech look at the crank for that call.Good luck.
