Don't make this choice on price alone.Go for quality.
If they use a torque-plate,and know what to torque it at (not the cold torque used for assembly),that's an indication of quality.

torque plates are a must for the bore, but the finish hone for fitmet size is most important. as already stated above. ((go with someone you trust)). 30.00 - 40.00 a jug
with the time, equipment involve and consumables thats a bargin...

I payed $100 for a 650 jug local and I felt like it was to much. what exactally you talkin about on the torque plates? holding the jug in place while machining?

we usually charge $50 to bore and hone a cylinder. so a 650 twin would be $100.

if its a big bore usually $65 per cylinder because of the additional passes it takes in the borring bar. (additional wear on the tooling)

if we have to replace sleeves, its $125 to account for the double setup time, and cost to run the oven.

and yes, we use torque plates.
