I am replacing the stock piston in my 700xx, due to the it putting a 1" horizontal gouge in the cylinder wall. Honda offers piston and rings they say is 0.25 oversized. Is that 0.25 inches? If so can you bore the stock cylinder that much and still be good? If my calculations are correct, that would bring the 686cc to 774cc. Please let me know.

Makes a lot more sense. The customer service rep from hondaservice.com didn't sound sure of himself. Just wanted to make sure. I didn't think you could bore that much out and still have a sleeve left.

I'm thinkin you would be better of with a stock piston & new barrel....Just buy the parts off the shelf and install them. No PITA measureing and sending stuff away to be bored and coated etc: .......

The piston your looking at is .25 mm or in inches is .010 Buy the piston and when it comes in take the cylinder and the new piston to the shop to have the cylinder bored to the piston.

i just found out from the dealer that it is not chrome lined and you can just bore it out.and you can bore .25 on the stock sleeve, if its worse than that you have to buy a new cylinder and run a stock piston.
