Honda engines have a legendary reputation for reliability and long life. But even those bullet-proof Japanese cylinders start to wear sooner or later. U.S. Chrome can extend the already impressive lifespan of a Honda engine with boring and plating services. With a little love from our technicians you’ll be rolling it on down the highway like it just came from the factory.
We know you’re anxious to get out and ride as soon as the snow’s gone. With the fastest turnaround time in the industry we can get your cylinders back to you so you can get on the road fast. If our unbeatable turnaround times aren’t fast enough, we also stock a large selection of refurbished cylinders available for sale immediately. See our full list of costs and prices.
Even new bikes can benefit from treatment at U.S. Chrome. We can bore out new cylinders to maximum overbore for increased displacement and power. We can work on any Honda motorcycle engine including:
U.S. Chrome uses a patented nickel composite, or NiCom, coating on all of our cylinder replating jobs. Our coating has impressive hardness and wear resistance, paired with a three micron particle size for a non-abrasive finish. It can be applied in thicknesses up to ten times greater than that of Chromium, making it ideal for cylinders and other sliding wear applications.
By applying a NiCom coating to the cylinders of your Honda motorcycle you will be increasing its lifespan by creating a more wear resistant, oleophilic surface that will be more durable than OEM or chromium coatings.
A brand new Honda engine will last you for many years and tens of thousands of miles, but eventually even the most well maintained cylinders will begin to wear. When they do, send them to U.S. Chrome for a full restoration.
Don’t let streaked cylinders or low compression be the end of a CX500 café racer build or restoration of a classic 70s superbike. Our cylinder service technicians have put countless vintage motorcycles back on the road. By boring out the cylinders and applying our patented NiCom coating we can restore your bike’s compression and power. When we’re done with your Honda engine you’ll be having as much fun on your vintage bike as its original owner did when it was fresh off the lot.
If you’ve been having fun with your brand new CBR100RR or Interceptor on the track just wait until you bring it into U.S. Chrome. Our cylinder boring technicians are experienced at squeezing every drop of power out of an engine by taking the cylinders out to maximum overbore for the most displacement humanly possible.
Our diamond plateau cylinder honing technique will symmetrically size the bore of your cylinders and leave you with a superior lubrication surface. Cylinders that have been bored and finished with our NiCom coating have tighter tolerances, rounder diameters and straighter strokes.
