Sorry to sound so blunt. I guess you are not convinced it needs replating.Rangerman wrote:Jason wrote:You can lead a horse to water.
This comment was not necessary at all and a bit to snarky for me given that all I have intended to do is post this experience to hopefully be of benefit to others who may have similar issues.
I have not even attempted to clean up the cylinder yet in any way and you have already determined it needs to be re-plated?
I have also cross posted this experience in a more limited fashion on another trusted forum and received quite different responses from two specific sources that I personally confide in that have a different opinion based on their experience and given this KDX's intended use.
I am not an expert in these matters nor have I suggested otherwise I just thought that since this was a KDX specific forum that I would give a detailed account from start to finish of issues that I am encountering that others may be able to glean from now or in the future.
Perhaps you might re-examine the way that you respond to others who contribute to this forum in the future as you might do more harm than good by turning potential contributors away with inappropriate responses to their questions and/or decisions.
"you have already determined it needs to be re-plated?"
Yes. Not just me, either. The cylinder plating is worn out and the cylinder needs to be replated. You have mentioned "cleaning it up" or something like that. It made me think you are just wanting to continue to run it instead of replating it. Sorry.
