Not much to say other than it now has a huge crack in it! I wouldn't recomend them, the standard bore may be fine but I'm guessing the big bore doesn't have enough material between the cylinder and the water jacket.
Might have 10 tanks ran through it.
Could have just been defective? I duno just letting people know my experiance.

Try calling cylinder works and tell them what happened. I've heard some people got a replacement cylinder for free

That's not good. I'm running their 98mm cylinder on mine for now. Have about 45 minutes on it. Runs good for now. Hopefully this isn't what's to come of mine but I guess I'll find out. Thanks for letting us know.

It was on here when I bought it but the guy told me he purchased everything last year and I've had it for 4 months and it's been cracked ever sense. I just now figured out where the water was going, so I haven't even rode it more than a few mins lol.
No receipt of course but it does have the complete 501 kit.
