  • Q: Do I need to send my piston in with my cylinder?

    A: Although, it is not mandatory, providing us with a new piston is always a good idea. By having a piston we can ensure proper finish bore size, as well as making sure that your new piston hasn’t been damaged. In most cases, we can do a cylinder to stock dimensions based on provided make, model, and year. If you would like us to provide a new aftermarket piston, simply choose the type you would like and indicate it on our work order form and send it in with your cylinder.

    Q: Do I need to take my cylinder apart?

    A: Please remove your head studs, dowels, intake, power valves, etc. There are additional cost for removing and replacing these components. We can remove them, however, Labaron's Power Sports will not be held liable for any damaged or broken parts that may result from disassembly. This includes cylinder head bolts!

    Q: Is there damage that can’t be fixed?

    A: Most times we can fix just about anything, however, there are a few scenarios that the damage just can’t be repaired. We recommend calling one of our technicians to discuss all of the options available.
