    WTB GP1200R PV cylinder/matching piston

    Hello all!

    I'm looking for a good 1200r PowerValve cylinder with matching piston. If you have one to sell, please PM me a price.

    Also, what are the thoughts on using a resleeved cylinder with 2 stock nikasil cylinders? Are there any issues with doing that?

    Thanks!

    Deck height can be an issue. I've used many an sbt cylinder, but there height can vary. This is only important if you using a 1 piece head. Otherwise you could have a water leak. As fare as mis matching. Port alignment with the sbt sleeve is usually pretty bad. Either expect to have a reduction in performace and increased heat build up in the sleeved cylinder compaired to the oem nik cylinders. In a stock sure, but don't do it if the motor is going to be hopped up any! I may have a b quality oem cylinder "light scuffs but plating intacked" I'll have to double check. No used pistons. Usually, the top outer edge of the piston dome rolls up so I toss those beotch's.

    That's a good point! I didn't even think about different (i.e. sloppy) timing ports or deck height. I was just thinking of heat transfer issues. Thanks for the advice!
