Re: needing a 1989 honda cr250r cylinder with good nikisil

the factory set up was a cast ring and niksil or chrome cylinder. When you install a sleeve, you basically reverse it, going to a chrome ring on a cast cylinder. My bike would go 2 riding seasons on one piston/ring set after the sleeve job, where before I was replacing them every season.

Still waiting for the "good old days" I'll get to bore my future grandchildren with!
