After determining that my cylinders on my 97 M900 were toast I sent them off to Millennium Technologies to be cleaned up and re-coated to stock specs. I just wanted to tell everyone that they look great and I'm anxious to get the thing back together. I sent along some FBF 11:1 pistons and they built up the bores around them and they should give me a little added punch. I'm delayed, however, because the re-coating process ate the three "freeze plugs" in the top of each cylinder and I need to replace those before reassembly (parts are in the mail from Ducati of Seattle). Thanks for the help with that delema Chris (ca-cycleworks.com). Anyway, I hope to have the beast running this weekend and I'm anxious to get it back on the road after being down for a month or so.

I almost went for a big bore kit but I was talked out of it (something to do with the stock "750" heads that live on the M900's of that year), so I went with the high comp pistons and stock cylinders. The Ducati Dealer in New Hampshire has a nice 944 big bore kit (cylinders and matching pistons) they sell for around $750 with exchanged cylinders and they say they've got lots of happy customers (no head problems. . . ?), so that's a decision you can make. . . You can also buy the 944 pistons from Chris at ca-cycleworks and send them and your cylinders to Millenium Technologies and they'll bore them out and fit the pistons for around $350-$400. Have fun. ;D
