September 2, 2018 Reply Outdoor Entertainment Question.. I have a 99 GasGas ec300 that I’m rebuilding this winter, I want to resleeve it and may just send the cylinder out to these guys..what’s the pricing like? If it’s over $300 then I won’t do it because I can get a rebuild kit (cylinder, piston, gaskets, wrist, circlips) for $460. But if it’s around $200 then I’d gladly send my cylinder out September 2, 2018 Reply N221BP Can't you create a patreon page for those wishing to donate, but already have white T-shirts, don't have worn down 2 stroke cylinders and already have all the listed tools?
