As soon as I get some more money together, I want to do a top end rebuild on my 1991 kdx200. It is still on the original piston, but starts 1st kick EVERY time and has plenty of power. I'm not sure how many miles are on the motorcycle but I figure better safe than sorry. Do kdx's typically need to have the cyliner re-coated with nikasil when doing a rebuild? As long as there are no scratch marks or rough spots on the cylinder, do you think it would be alright just to put in a new piston? Thanks for your time.
