Revolution performance

Got email from rev performance and if you buy a big bore kit they do your crank for free. Just wanted to share. I have seen a lot of builders use their kits and really like them. Hope someone uses it.

I wish they wouldve had that offer when I did mine. I have a 103 in the garage, maybe I should see if they'll work a deal, wouldn't mind having a 117.

Not sure about the Rev Perf Nikasil cylinders, but they completely botched a set of my cylinder heads...twice! I finally just walked away and went with another shop that put together a good set of ported heads for my build.

I know some say good, some say bad. Leads me to think they may have some process quality control issues.

prodrag1320 knows his stuff. I'd follow his advice.

the NIKASIL has been coming off the cylinders & having catasrophic results,not to sat EVERY kit has problems,but its WAY more than they should.guys that have had problems are told they installed it wrong,wasnt clean enough,wrong tune,ect,ect.but NEVER their fault.i dont see any reason for NIKASIL cylinders anyway,no real advantages over regular cast sleaves & very few shops have the diamond honing stones to work on them

I could'nt disagree with you more.Thats an issue they had in the past that has been long since remedied.I've been running they're cylinders for 4yrs. now without any issues.I know of numerous other bikes with not one issue.Nikasil cylinders are used by a number of other companies without any issues.
