headscratch ? about the better cylinder kit

I was wondering which kit is better, the cylinder works big bore+3 w/vertex piston and a lining or the alba cylinder +2 w/cp piston. guess there is no lining on the alba and the piston is a 11:1 and cylinder works has the 10:1 and Nickel Silicon Carbide plated. Just wanted some opinions before i buy.

I did some research on this and heard lots of bad things about cylinder works kits. I am putting the CP +2 11:1 piston is as we speak. Also one of my Valk on here has the CP one and likes it so far

I have been running a Cylinder Works kit for years on one of my 450R's, no issues what so ever, haven't really heard of to many issues with the Honda kits, but never looked into other makes. The 450R I run the kit on is my back up to the race 450R, but it gets ridden the most and I do sometimes race it. I like it because when freshen up the top end, I just buy another kit, pretty cheap price for a new cylinder, piston, and gaskets. Guess it gives me piece of mind. I would bet a Cylinder Works kit will eventually find its way on to my backup 700XX also, maybe even my race 700XX. I like the cost of a refresh and plenty safe on pump gas.
