Sleeves & Resleeving

Sleeve – Resleeve

Most of today’s high performance Motorcycles, ATVs & Watercraft are using various coatings inside the cylinder bore.

These coatings include nikasil, ceramic and chrome.

The main function of these coatings is to reduce internal friction. These coatings have a high resistance to wear, but they do wear.


Many things promote cylinder wear:

  • Dirt or water entering the cylinder
  • Detonation
  • Overheating
  • Dad ignition
  • Retarded timing
  • Pre-ignition
  • Incorrect jetting
  • Leaking head gasket
  • Air leaks
  • not bringing the engine up to temperature before a ride.

RPM’s Cycles can provide all these services, by far the most cost-effective and long-term choice is to install a cylinder sleeve.

  • Have your cylinder re-plated
  • Buy a new factory cylinder
  • Have your cylinder re-sleeved
