£30 - £40 seems about right these days. PJME have a good reputation and would seem a good choice if you don’t mind posting. Can’t help with anyone else more local round Yorkshire. Good luck whatever you choose.

Had mine done by this business. The one man business is operated by a lad who specialises in two strokes cost was £30.00. Few others on here have had rebores and big ends replaced by him.

I will second what Mick says above...not everybody can do a good job on a 2 stoke...not as easy as a 4 stroke....yes they will tell them they can do it...burn my finger till I found Karl at kpmotosolutions near Chesther...he does a mai order service.

Unfortunately, he may not be up and running yet as he was recently quite ill.

But if he is not ask him who he recommends.

Karl only works on 2 strokes nothing else.

If you contact him please report back on how he is doing...big loss to 2 stroke owners if he has stopped for good.

Nick.

Stanwood Engineering at Bawtry, Doncaster (used to be Stanwood Hunter). Not used them myself, but I know they have an excellent reputation.

Dave Hodgkinson just outside Derby if you don't mind travelling. He will do it while you wait and will check any new piston you supply. He is very fussy, relieves the ports and gives you the barrel back clean. He has done over 90,000 rebores ( or so he tells me!).

Also does cranks and other machining. Let me know if you need his number.
