Technology - Coated / plated cylinder walls !
So I kind of wondered when or if you needed to have your cylinders bored due to wear,
How would the machine shop redo the plating on the cylinders ?
I know some bikes use a Nicasil coating, for which it's intended purpose is to reduce friction
and generate more power with less wear.
So would this mean that the Vstrom cylinders would have to be replaced and not bored oversize.?
I have never heard anybody talk about having engine work done like this on this forum. ...
