    Default Sleeves good option in a Dying situation.

    Sleeving is the only option left if your Machine is dying & you cant find the New bore.

    Sleeving if done properly. Boosts your Machines Fuel efficiency, your ride gets smoother like the Std bore, thers no vibrations from the Bore & overall its a nice feeling. This is the Upper side of Sleeved bore.

    The Lower side even if the Sleeve is done very nicely, you cant expect your bike to perform like the Original, The Bike Heats very fast specially in the RX's family bores thers unusual knocking sound emitted if you try to rev it past 85 kmph (RX-100 Sleeved Bore) & it feels as if the Bike is choking & gasping for Air.

    There are 2 turners in Mumbai who can get a good Job of Sleeving. 1 is in Gaiwadi & the other in Dadar. It can cost you around 1000 Rupees per Bore.

    I personally have tried almost all the 2 strokers that I own to run on the Sleeved Bores & I am not satisfied with the Result.

    Reboring is increasing the size of bore (dia of the cylinder). All cylinders have a sleeve (covering) made of a certain material. This is to ensure longevity of the bore.
    Once the wall of the sleeve is worn out a rebore is required. This can be done to a certain limit as sleeves are of usually 0.5~2mm thickness. If this has worn out almost completely then a new sleeve is required (resleeving).

    Successfully sleeved the bore. The sleeving has been done with immaculate precision and slightly polished the ports too. Didn't overdo it. The bike is in rebuild stage and i will keep this post updated with the results once I start riding the bike. If success is achieved in the process I believe it would be a great feat.

    Default Oversize bore or new cylinder kit?

    Hey great, could you post your post sleeving experiences on the machine, I myself have recently put my RE Machismo 1996 on a garage for engine job.

    I intended for a cost efficient job, as i am contemplating to buy a TBTS 500 when lauched, hence did not go for new cylinder kit.

    I am getting it re-bored to 20 oversize. (this is my first engine job, and bore size is std)

    I believe, this will not upset me......


    Gurus, pl throw lights....... pl advice, i still have time to shift to new cylinder kit.

    thks

    Good to hear that. May i know which brand of piston are you using?

    In the near future, even i will re-sleeve my existing 4TL00 (which is running 1.5mm O/S) & go for STD size ART or Wiseco.

    Unfortunately before i got the ART piston i had already given the guy a Mhale one so as of right now Mhale piston std is installed.

    I have stocked ART 1st and 2nd oversizes for the future.

    Currently the bike is in run in period so cant say much about the performance but the response has been great than whatever i had heard about the re - sleeving myths.

    Some basic/elementary questions on reboring:-

    If the bore is given for the sizing, do we also give the piston to them?
    Do they also take the measurement of the piston dia and setup the boring accordingly i.e including clearance?

    100 % piston required to get maximum result. even though reboring done with 0.001 mm accuracy dail boregauge.

    since piston to cylinder clearance should be maintained at 0.030-0.038 mm depends on make and model. one need to mesaure the piston outer diameter with micrometer(screw guage) to get the reeding at actuall mm followed by 3 digit decimal

    eg: for Rx 100 1st over piston diameter should be 50.250mm but always can be +/-0.020mm.
