Ive recently sent my cylinder away to be replated here in AUS due to it having a chip in the nikasil. The cylinder has returned with the chip still there, Ive sent it back another 2 times to have it fixed properly but apparently due to a defect in the cylinder it is pretty much as good as it will ever be, I was wondering if I can get some opinions on what my options are, I would buy a new cylinder from honda but it seems asthough stock for parts 12101-KSK-730 and 12102-KSK-730 are depleted globally. Im considering sending my cylinder to the US for replating properly as with this experience it doesn't seem like there is anyone in AUS capable of performing the repair.

I think youre getting bullshitted. Millennium technologies can definitely fix that. Since youre in austrailia, it might be cheaper to buy a new one than sending it to the states.

Ive had worse cylinders than that come back perfectly new from millennium. That company that told you that its unfixable is a pos.

I've emailed millennium to see what they reckon about it, I would buy a new cylinder in a heart beat but it seems like they're totally back ordered out, seems like they mighten even exist anymore as a spare.

If you go with millennium, choose the swap method to lower the turnaround time. I think youre looking at 4 weeks just for shipping

Ask the original place what kind of warranty they have on their plating since they say it's fine.

I have run worse and had no problems. YMMV.

They say 6 months warrantee, but I plan on using the bike for fmx so having something not quite right isnt sitting too well with me.

Like Acidreamer said, MT can fix just about anything. I also have sent cylinders in with way worse damage than yours and had it come back from them looking literally brand new. Not sure if it is a realistic option where you are in AUS but if you have the time and money to do it, they will surely get you fixed right.
