Just because it makes noise doesn't mean it's right? You said a mouth full there.

It seems like sticking to the subject at hand does the talking for most of us versus going off on personal BS. Which reminds me, real nice PM.

The bottom line is if you've been doing it wrong all these years how do you know when it's right?

Thanks for all advice. Lots of good info. Parts for Bultaco are still pretty easy to get. I'm not to worried about boring the cylinder, this was the first time over. Got lucky there. I just ordered a specially prepared mikuni carb so I'd like to start this year at square one. I'm going to do a light clean up with the scotch bright and new rings. CharlieT who sells that brush hone I'd like to have one for future projects. Thanks all for the help.

By the bikes making optimum power again and by seeing numerous others do the same thing with the same results.

We've been through this. You won't put up pink slips to prove your theories so it's all talk.

I offer the challenge yet again. Bonneville Fall 2014,1000 CC air cooled pushrod engine on gasoline,carbureted-no power adders. No other rules other than you build it-all of it,ride it and prove that all the work is yours. Must be a new bike,no using something already done. Fastest bike takes both of them home. No records need to be set,just the fastest bike wins. Well? Put up or shut up.

DGW......I picked up mine from Millenium Technologies up in WI about 15yrs ago. THey were the shop we used for replating cylinders. THey recommended them over the ball hones on plated cylinders as per their expereince, the ball hones can bounce in/out of ports and potenially chip the edge of the Nikasil. CHecked around and most places seem to carry only the ball/grape/dingleberry hones. Might try grainger or MSC. I have seen some a plumber friend had in his shop that looked the same that they used for cleaning boiler tubes, etc. However I don't know what material or grit they were composed of.
