Yes. $300 plus tax/shipping. I also checked Mongoose in Vancouver and they quoted $325 plus tax/shipping.

Update:
I checked in again with the machine shop. They checked again (and again) and were quite confident with their new measurement of 99.873mm, which of course makes no sense at all as cylinders don't tend to shrink. I have no confidence in this shop.

I happened to be passing through Vancouver last weekend so I stopped by Mongoose Machine to get their take on it. I paid a $35 estimate fee to find out that my cylinder measures between 100.00 and 100.06mm, which seems much more plausible. Mongoose's recommendation was to go with the (largest) 99.97mm ProX piston, and they commented that the Husaberg manual's piston clearance spec was much larger than they would normally use.

Unfortunately, this doesn't clarify the problem as much as I would hope. Given the (coated) piston clearance spec of 0.042-0.087mm, my ideal piston should be 99.913-99.958mm, which points toward the smallest ProX piston.

So there we have it - I have a measurement, but I have two opposing recommendations. I'm inclined to go for the medium-size piston as a compromise, but it's disappointing to have to make a guesstimate like that after all of this measurement nonsense.

What would you do?

Best prices I could find (in CAD, shipped and taxed):
ProX $190
Wossner $300
OEM $535

Rubbish, but worth trying since it's nearly half the price of the Wossner? There's a good possibility I'll be selling this bike in the next year or so.

I take that back. This just popped up on my favourite site for cheap bastards:

Wossner 8602 DB USD$100 99.96mm

I bought it, so I sure hope it's the right size for my liner.
