Yup, those cylinders are Nikasil plated.

If it's damaged your options are to replate or to re-new (actually you could also rebore and run a steel liner though thats not recommended).

Mine was damaged and I chose to buy a new cylinder / gasket / piston kit which ran to almost $400 in total.

TT store has good pricing, check out the green tab at top of page.

Maybe its just a blown gasket if compression is bad?
