I second Zuber's suggestion. A new cylinder is about $450. US Chrome will send yours back looking as good as or better than new. Scary part is that a OE piston is over $400.

Motul 600. I know it's already been said, but try this first. It will make a HUGE improvement if not cure the problem. If more is needed, try the cooling extender.

Ballistic batteries

Parts unlimited is now selling Ballistic lithium batteries. Anybody have any experience with these? A bit cheaper than the Shorai. It's getting near to that time on my 990.
