Picking up an old 810 kit soon (if the guy sells to me, anyway) and having a tough time finding a place. My first thought was APE, but with a $90 markup for using my own pistons plus shipping, it seems like a wash vs. buying a new kit from them. 

Essentially, I’m hoping for within riding distance from me.

I dont know of a shop here in Michigan for piston boring , But Pitstop Performance in Florida  charges  180 Dollars for a KZ 1000 bore/ hone job
 No idea on  810 kit  from them but they distribute and help design  kits with MTC  co. 
Call them  or better and faster to use there E Mail from my experience  with them.
They  sold me my MTC turbo pistons  and  I sent them my block. 
Part of there  service was  doing all ring gapping  too

I haven’t tried these guys yet but I have talked to them. He didn’t shy away when I asked about machine work on our vintage engines. Im chasing car trouble currently or I’d have dropped off my head. I’m going to give them a try.

I’m in Lansing, so that’s not too far at all. No rush on the number, the guy is dragging his feet on responding, but it’ll be nice to have in any case.

I have not used them yet, but great referrals from real racers.It has been my gained knowledge to get all the specs and (special details) in a info packet for a Mechanic or Machinists if they are not specialists.Good is good, but they don't know every single part/design unless its its highlighted for them and easy to read. If you do a couple hours of research and print outs it saves money  from the get go.         Be Well

Thanks for the number and advice! I'll tuck it away for later.

Action Cycle Engineering in Portage, MI.  They are not online that I know of.  Has done a couple beautiful bore jobs and cylinder head work too for me.  Been doing it since day 1, racing KZ's and GS's.  Super knowledgeable and has stuff like filters, cables, etc. for these old bikes often in stock.  Don't dilly dally though they are talking of retiring soon?
