Say what? You can have your own cylinder (not the head) bored and honed for less $ than you can find a new one with the stock bore. And you can probably buy a new aftermarket piston and rings for less than the Honda oversized ones. If you're hoping to slap a new piston and rings of the same size as what you have now, you may be disappointed with the results. I'd call Wiseco and ask them if they still have the 9:1 compression ratio "kit".
