View Full Version : 04 1200 cylinders/pistons for sale
4th January 2005, 02:09
I would like to sell my 1200 black cylinders with pistons. I have not removed the cylinders yet but the heads are off. I will leave the pistons in the cylinders and mark them front/rear. They have 1100 miles on them and are in like new condition. These list at 274 each with pistons. I'll take 200 for the pair plus shipping. Best part no break-in required. Put em on and ride it like you stole it. So if you plan on buying 1200 heads here is the rest. Pics on request.
Also if anyone has a set of 04-05 883 cylinders they want to sell I am interested.

OK, Barry, now I'm really interested in what you're up to. First you had your 1200 heads shrink ported. Then you sold them to buy 883 heads to presumably have them shrink ported, too. Now you're switching to 883 cylinders???
Is there something I (we) should know? Was this JET's idea and what's the theory behind it?

Man, Two weeks ago I would have drove to RI to get em'..... My timing stinks.... Oh well, It's a great deal for someone!!!!!

The only reason is astetics, is that spelled right? I just want to match the 883 silver powdercote to some cylinders. Held side by side the 883 fins are thinner than the 1200 heads and are not machine finished. Trying to strip the black powdercote off my 1200 cylinders is an option but a pain in the ass. So if I can find 883 cylinders cheap I'll grap a set. If not I'll strip mine.

Barry, PM me.

PM sent. LOL

PM sent. LOL
I may have jumped the gun. I doubt if the '04 cylinders will fit my '89?

The bolt pattern is the same but the fins are bigger. That's the only difference I have seen between them.
6th January 2005, 01:52
Let me check it out tomorrow or if Steveo comes on. I'd like to have them at that price.

if your looking for a somewhat time consuming but not that hard of a way to get the powdercoat off your bike use a bead blaster if you know anyone who has one. i use the one the mechanics at my job have on my old bike and it worked great.

:laugh Hey Mike, gimmie a break. I'm hoping to buy these things

Don't worry Will, you have first dibs. I still need to find a set of 883 buckets. So I'm really in no rush if your not. Of course if I find a set tommorrow .... I won't have decent weather until April, give or take.

The 883 heads are having a major overhaul. New 5/16 stem valves, 1.715 intake, 1.480 exhaust as opposed to the 7mm stem. Older style valve seals and high performance springs, locks and retainers along with his intake and exhaust port work. I hope it will be worth it. I'm not really looking for more HP. I hope to grab a bunch of TQ though.

Willprevale, The '04/'05 cylinders will fit an earlier engine with the only difference being longer cooling fins. If you were going to go with the '04/'05 heads, then you really wouldn't notice the fins. On that same note, keep in mind the pistons will not match up (bolt on) with the ealier heads (883 or 1200). However, one could have those heads fitted to the pistons. FWIW.
Barry, Dang you wrench even more than me:) So, you went with the 883 heads? What year 883 heads are you running? I have a set of 883 cylinders and pistons of my 2000 that I may be willing to work out a deal on. But of course they'd probably look out of place under a set of '04 883 heads. To further the question above "what are you up to know?" What exactly are you building this time? Forgive me if there is another thread on this already, I haven't been on the forum in a while.

Hi Shu, nice to see you back. I guess that means I'd have to get new pistons, making the deal a little less attractive. Go ahead and work your deal if you can.

Why won't the pistons fit. The pistons are factory flat tops. Unless his heads have bigger combustion chambers I don't see how they would not work. Yes I am using 04 heads. Don't know if it's going to be worth it but we shall see. :D
Will, I had someone pm me about the cylinders. He has an 05 883 and wants mine I asked if he would swap his cylinders for a dicounted price. I offered them to you first so let me know please. Barry

I still don't understand why you are taking a 1200cc bike down to 883cc. What are you hoping to achieve? I understand the velocity vs. total flow argument for the heads, but what's up with losing over 300cc? Forgive me for asking, but why didn't you just buy an 883 to start with?
6th January 2005, 17:13
I'm not going to 883cc. I will bore the 883 cyls out to 1200. I just wanted to match the silver powdercoated heads and cyls.
6th January 2005, 23:45
I need to hear from shu, stevo or someone before I make a comittment. If you get a chance to make a decent deal, I won't hold you up.
I also will have 883 cylinders.
7th January 2005, 00:41
Will. Are those 04-05 cyls?

Mine is an '89
7th January 2005, 11:05
I am really only interested in 04-05 cylinders. Thanks though.
7th January 2005, 14:12
Got it, now. Please let me know how you like the setup when you're done as I'm contemplating a few different ways to go with mine and want all the info I can get before I make a move. No hurry...it's next winter's project.
7th January 2005, 22:37
At this point I think I'll keep my black cyls. It's only 90 bucks to hone them .010 over and who knows, the silver, black, silver look on the motor might look neat.
Thanks anyway everyone. Barry

Who am I to say...but I think that's a good call.
8th January 2005, 01:33
All's well that ends well.
8th January 2005, 01:37
Sorry will, If I change my mind I'll keep you in mind.
8th January 2005, 01:38
Nothing to be sorry about. Things usually work oiut the way they should. Thanks for being so considerate.
