    Would NOS cylinder barrels come honed? Please see pics

    Hi Guys,

    Would NOS cylinder barrels come honed? Please see pics. I just bought these for my '68 cb450 and I see a swirl pattern but not a distinct cross hatching. Are the honed all ready? Thanks in advance! -David

    interesting. While I don't know the answer, I'll be watching this. Knowing how honda does things, I would imagine they are shipped 'ready-to-run'.. .but that is only speculation.

    Interesting is right! They certainly look "dressed" in with the swirls from bottom to top. -D

    That sure look like crosshatching to me. However it will not hurt to make a few passes with a hone if you are not sure.

    Don't forget to measure the clearance from piston to sleeve.
