Its just a basic bore job. 4stroke only shops can do it or 2stroke only, or competent machine shops. Now if he did want porting then yes totally send it out to bdt, LED, Bubba etc..
Ok, great good to know. Thanks sandslinger. I guess once I pull the cylinder it will determine if I am porting and boring or just getting a new cylinder, In that case I will be searching for an OEM one !
There's a guy in your area I just know him off bansheehq his name is Carl, and he builds quick shees, but he also works on 250rs as well. BigMike on here knows who I am talking about and could probably give you the info. Itd save you shipping and he has a good Rep. If that dont work out yes Carlos at BDT in Cali could get yah set up no problem.
Welcome I’m in nyc as well,I had a good mechanic in a local Honda shop (20yrs at same dealer)but he recently left,he’s from out east I can hit him up on his cell and see where he’s working these days.where do you plan on riding? Calverton ?Big mike on here is from LI maybe he can recommend someone out east..pm him.
I'll second the motion, on finding a bore shop that only does small engines, mostly 2 strokes. Because they know the 2 stroke engines & how important it is to have a good straight bore with the proper piston to bore clearance.
Years ago, I use to hop around from one automotive machine shop to another to get my cylinder boring done, but it cost me enough one season to make me change my way of thinking. When it all came to a head, it cost me two class championships for the season, from poor bore jobs from workers that would rather set up 4 holes at a time, sit back & watch the machine work, than doing one each time. Lesson learned, so now I have the best two stroke cylinder bore man I have ever used & until something happens to him, his shop is the only one I'll use.
Having a bore shop close to you, can be important also, so you can keep an eye on things. Not that shipping it out for a bore & fit is out of the question though, because theres plenty of places to ship out to that can do a quality bore & fit.

Sounds good., I am going to try to get in contact with Bigmike and see if he can give me Carls information. Obviously id like to stay on the island, cut the cost and hassle of shipping.
Most of my riding is upstate Ny and Calverton yes, - nothing serious or competitive.
How can I get in touch with bigmike? somewhat new to the site...
thanks a ton guys super helpful!
If a guy like Neil says skip the machine shop route then I stand corrected. I had great luck and my dad did to, but Neil is really knowledgeable. If big mike on here don't hit yah up I can pm you some on Carl.
Big mike is on here pretty frequently,you can pm him .If your unsure how to do that just click on his name then there is a private message option.
