question on cylinder sleeve
As stated in a few other threads, my 00 slx 1200 crapped out. How do cylinder sleeves work? I found this on ebay, would this work? Would I have to take it to a machine shop or something to get put in?
Here is the link:
If this doesnt work, I'm still on the lookout for a cylinder.

Than you need to have it bored to size.

Old sleeve has to be bored out in a boring bar and cylinder cut to the size of the new sleeve. New sleeve has .003-.004 press on it. Cylinder is then put into oven and heated to 400 degrees and new cylinder is then inserted into newly bored area and aligned. After Cooling,all ports are then matched back to the original sizing and spec. Cylinder now is ready for boring and then honing to correct size. Once this is done and completed ports are chamfered. Cylinder deck height must now be checked to ensure that sleeve height is correct also and if its not then cylinder must be decked. Not for the guy who thinks he can do it is his garage, and honestly alot of machine shops dont have the proper tooling to do it right either. Auto Machine shops yes, but get ready for the cost, as its not cheap, and takes some time to do right!!

I agree with Prochamp. The only thing different in my experience than what he says is that i've gotten sleeves out without boring by heating the cylinder and pushing the sleeve out. Some cylinders are actually cast around the sleeve too. I think some of the fuji cylinders may be like that if i remember right. Then they definitely need to be bored out, can't be pressed out.
