Machine shop around Spring/The Woodlands area?

I am looking for a machine shop in the Spring/The Woodlands area that will bore my stock XR400R sleeve to accommodate a 440 kit. Anyone know of one from experience?

Please let me know.

Thanks,
Nick.

texranger: Im busy for the next 2wks, and its not really my specialty. Machine shops are low on work right now, so you shouldnt have trouble finding someone. If you have any questions, just let me know.

Nick,

Does the case need to be bored too?
I remember when I ran an XR400R motard I contacted XR's only and I thought that they told me the case had to be bored for the 440 kit?
Call North West Honda. I believe they can bore the cylinder.

As far as i know, the case does not need to be bored. There's even a "plug and play" 440 kit that includes an aftermarket cylinder (just pull out the stock cylinder, put the new one in place with the piston and you are ready to go)... kinda expensive for me at the moment .

Thanks!!

Scroggins is off of 59 and 45, I've used them for almost ALL of my machine work on my racecars over the past 5 or 6 years...

<thread jack>

Anybody know of somebody in NW (Cypress) area? I just need a frame slider mount bored out and re-tapped for a larger bolt, and the other end bored out to accept the larger bolt size. Real easy stuff I just don't have the tools to do so. Thanks
