Apparently Nikasil can be honed out without too much drama by a company like Revolution Performance. But I get your point, it's a very small number of companies that even could do this. I'd guess a whole lot smaller than the number of companies who could bore and insert a steel liner. In theory, with enough time and money just about anything 'could' be done though.
What turned me off of the steel liner option was when I talked to a Victory tuner I trust 100%. He thought I'd have to fog the engine anytime the weather got cold enough to snow or leave a heavy frost. That, or risk rusting cylinder walls thereby ruining the engine with one start up. Fog the engine, in Chattanooga, TN, no thank you, I passed on that note. And yes, I warm up the 106" as recommended for the steel liner BB kit. That part isn't a deal breaker for me.
Maybe I'm over simplifying this but it seems a Nikasil 117" kit would be just it came from the factory. Then add intake, exhaust, tuning changes etc. as money and desires allow. Making the 117" kit more of a 'designed in' system than an 'added on' system and I'm all for that. Currently my main interest in the Revolution Performance BB Kit is to see what Rylon Vos and Kevin Cross think of it. As posted earlier, if these two go for it, that's the marker I'd use to move on it.
If I'm over thinking this, please let me know your thoughts.
All the best,
