    I tried cutting through it first with a diamond ball and it helped but as some as the carbide touched and plating it chipped or lifted. It was lifting with high speeds and chipping with slow speeds.

    Matters not, I don't think yo could trust the rings to go by it any longer anyways.

    Just for the regulart "nikasil" I have to spend much time using medium or fine rubber abrasives to blend the plating back down to aluminum. I use fine grit diamons burrs to help speed up the process, but even then they chip easily. I'm thinking it is an adhesion flaw, but since it appears to be a slight issue even on some Husqvarna cylinders, it could just be the nature of such kinds of plating. I too was concerned that if the titanikel can't hold up to a little grinding, how can it handle the rings sliding over port edges. At least in stock form, the plating overlapping into the ports helps to hold it all in place.

    None of that.
    CFB has said he walked the paths not traveled yet and the ground was not right.
    Take a different path... move on , you'll survive.
