Big bore kit problems rktek 925

I got a 925 kit,but when i got it the cylinder,the walls was not in spec, the cylinder walls was to tight at the lower part of the sylinder, so i asked what to do, they said that i should cut of about 8mm of the cylinder skirts,but i think that the piston wil jiggle inside the cylinder, is that right?
Should i send it back?.or should i just cut of the skirtes?
Really need some help here,i dont want my engine to break down

Send it back........... cutting the skirts isn't an option

8mm is alot for you to cut
if it is really that much send it back
and get a kit from someone else
i ran psi and d&d 1010 kits
they both were alot of fun

If this was something that was bought NEW? there is no way in hell I would be cutting the cylinders!! I would send it back and or get a refund! and or maybe try someone elses kit.
Good luck

So is it the piston skirts, or actually cylinder walls that are the problem?
