Cylinder Boring Shop Houston

I'm looking for a good place in Houston to get the stock cylinder bored in my Kawasaki klx 110 to put a 130cc big bore kit in it. I don't want to put a 143cc kit in it because I want to be F6 legal in TMGP (max 135cc allowed). I've searched the forum and saw somebody recommended Northwest Honda a while back. Google results came up with Metric Motorcycles, Harold's Automotive Machine Shop, and Cycle Sports Ltd. Anybody have advice on a good place to go?

I've used Harolds a few times for my CRF100's.

Very reasonable prices and they have always done good work for me.

Cycle Sports did mine on a 4-wheeler I was rebuilding. No problems.

Just a note in case you or others didn't know:
You'll need the cylinder and the new piston when you take it in (no matter where you go), so it can be mic'ed and bored properly.

I use a little shop in Pasadena for all my work (Rea Machine). It's a guy named Kerry and his older father. They do amazing work from cylinders to cranks and near everything in between.

Just FYI, he's been around a long time

Ive been using a guy in alvin named jared (motorcycle machine works). So far he has been very easy to deal with and very reasonably priced. Not sure he replates at his shop but he does all the machine work there.

Harolds. Richmond / Pecan Grove area if memory serves. They did a cool job for me that required ingenuity and improv and it turned out perfect.
