    And just how are there 70k miles plus bikes on there original engine? Plenty of Harleys out there with near 200k never opened up. Hell my completely inferior 75 ironhead didn't look like that when I looked inside. I don't know why you're still rebuilding the damn thing if you've written it off as such a piece of s#!+? Just get rid of it and build your own bike damnit. F@#&

    You have it down that far and can SEE the need for overhaul . If you don't do it you lose your right to ever complain about that bike.

    Yes. It's very clean. Now fix what caused it. Your bike will be much happier.

    And now this engine will never run right again. Guarantee the rings don't seal no matter what crosshatch you put on it. It is not advised to remove the piston from the cylinders without boring the cylinders to ensure they are round again.

    I don't know why you even bother with buell motorcycles ? Your always putting them down but then coming up with innovative things for them ? No sooner do you come up with something new for then your putting down the machine you made it for ?? I don't know if your aware of it but, your a bit strange. I don't say this in a negative way but maybe you should go talk to someone. Believe me, for me to say this to someone, they have to be a little off someplace because, I've seen a lot in my visit here on earth.
    I hope you don't take this the wrong way.

    Go see someone, please, you have issues !

    AZ, I see you left the pistons in the cylinder, did you then use a chemical to clean them or some mechanical device ? Also, why go through all of that with out installing new rings, along with the honing?

    Inquiring minds would like to know ?
