Steel liner in Nikasil Cylinder
Posted April 04, 2007 - 12:10 AM
I'm up for a new cylinder unless I run the liner.
I've read up the pros and cons of both, but none specifically related to the WR.
I'm temped to try the liner.
Any performance difference?
Are the different heat transfer characteristics and friction coeff between steel / Nikasil likely to be critical?

Unfortunately living in N.Thailand there is no where i can get a Nikasil re-coat so its gonna have to be a new cylinder, piston and rings.
Kyle, excellent info about the liner rusting so quickly on the road bike, I had not even considered that, nor the extra piston to wall clearance that would be required due to the different materials expanding at different rates.
