2-Stroke Engine Cylinder Service

Is your shifter kart getting sluggish? Are you down on power?


2-stroke cylinder replating from U.S. Chrome restores your kart’s engine to its former glory. Our durable NiCom (nickel silicon carbide composite) coating is harder and stronger than chromium composites. NiCom averages 600 Vickers (62-64 Rockwell C). Harder, more durable cylinder walls last longer and have a higher compression rating. Kart engines with NiCom last longer and outperform the competition. Cylinder plating from U.S. Chrome is one of the best ways to maximize the performance of your 2-stroke engine without breaking the bank.


2-Stroke Engine Honing

Over time the cylinder walls of your 2-stroke engine will wear and degrade. Compression falls, blow-bys increase, and performance suffers. U.S. Chrome offers two-stage diamond plateau honing for shifter kart engines. Honing alone isn’t enough. The honing process leaves ridges and valleys in your cylinder wall. Eventually, the piston will break in the cylinder wall and wear down these ridges. A plateau finish from U.S. Chrome effectively breaks in the cylinder wall for you, providing maximum performance right away.

Shifter Kart Engine Boring

U.S. Chrome offers unmatched 2-stroke cylinder boring services for racers who want to increase the power of their engine. Most shops overbore engines with no regard for cylinder wall thickness. U.S. Chrome has the expertise to bore engine cylinders without sacrificing durability. Boost power with a larger piston or just improve durability by servicing your cylinder walls. U.S. Chrome offers affordable shifter kart engine boring.
