LT500 Piston Problem

Hey guys I was wondering if any one knows if any companies make a piston for my quad bigger than what i have now. Right now it is 1.50mm over. So I need a 1.75mm piston. I don't want to resleeve. Thats just that much more money that I'm going to have to come up with. The sleeve has plenty of meat left on it for another bore but of course I need to have a piston that will fit it first. Right now the bill is going to be around $800. So Every little bit counts right now. Thanks for the help every one.

Re: LT500 Piston Problem

Did you try Weisco?
I do not know about the lt500 but i do know that they make pistons up to 2.00 over for other bikes.
To save you a little money i need to know a little more info:
Is there wear or scratches in the cylinder?
If the cylinder is in good condition you may be able to just replace the piston or rings. (sorry you didn't say why you were going to do a top end job, and since i have been working on my own bike i have not had the chance to check the forum, and missed any past posts you may have)
A light hone may be able to clean up the cylinder instead of a re-sleeve.
If there is a need to re-sleeve you may find it cheaper to look around for a used top end with close to stock boar. I have seen whole engines for around $600 on ebay, so a top end alone should be much cheeper.
