I would'nt have to resleeve the OEM 100mm until after I go with bigger than 102.5mm kit.

Well the cylinder went to the Honda shop today to get bored out to match my 101mm piston kit, and I am have new helicoils put into the bolt holes that were stripped out in the motor case and the cylinder. So I should be up and running in 2 weeks!!!!! I cant wait to fire this bad boy up! Any tips on break-in for ceramic coated piston???
