They are nikasil but you should be able to hone them. Send it to Millenium http://mt-llc.com/ around $560 i think... They did my 04 cases. I would not lighting the crank, the stock crank puts the power down more "efficiently" than the lightened one, but that's just me though :thumbsup: Keep us posted.

break down

well started breaking down the motor today and stopped after spliting the cases. spoke with millennium and they said i could use the aluminum oxide 240flexhone to deglaze the cylinders. just a couple of strokes though. heres some pics so far.

crank

i would not lighten that crank, already lightened from o6-07, back close to 04-05 specs. tasos is right, lose too much inertia at start, between gears with this short stroke engine.
