    anyone used TBolt USA 186 big bore cylinder on their grom

    I was looking into doing some changes to my Finbro 183 grom and do some mix matching of cylinder and heads and cam for my next project once I get my Takegawa 181-4v broken in.

    I was wondering if anyone used TBolt USA parts since their selling points on their cylinder were
    Ceramic coated all aluminum cylinder.

    Anyone used them with any luck????

    I'm using that one, quality sure didn't seem like an issue. I have the finblo bbk head with it and no problems. Only about 50 miles on due to fueling concerns and lack of time.

    thank you for the feed back

    did you have to cut reliefs in the piston for the intake or exhaust valve?

    I like TBolt cylinder materials that they use for their cylinder wall and how much better the cylinder is for cooling.

    My setup will be to use the BrianS 170 ported head on my build and going back to the Finbro ported intake pipe and stock throttle body using the PC-150 f/i and the duel spring setup with DCR cam.

    I was having great power with the BrianS 170 kit and I believe his ported head for a 2v system was the best on the market.

    thanks for the info

    I was reading up on how their cylinder is built and I like the fact that they don't use steel/metal sleeve and their cylinder walls are
    ceramic coated all aluminum cylinder with larger fins

    All I did was assemble with double base gasket and turn over by hand. Using Koso tb, intake and cam. Cooled by frame mount Kitaco 5-row.
