Mahle non OEM parts - you sure they are I would think Husqvarna would stop any third party manufacturer & Husqvarna supplier copying OEM parts!

Where are you getting the kit from?

I know that many OEM manufacturers won't manufacture items such as bolts, bearings, seals etc and just stick their own part number on a third party manufactured part but have never seen Mahle cylinders or pistons available - only Meteor, Episan or Chinese.

Have you any links?

Your right spud, i apologise, I've just been back to look and the reference to Mahle was saying that the nikisil coating on the cylinder was introduced by Mahle, I read it as the cylinder was
Mahle

Thought so - I couldn't see Husqvarna allowing a supplier to manufacture OEM parts and sell them as non OEM - just not commercially acceptable.

I have seen the Nikasil ebay listing you mention, unfortunately Joe Public are not going to be able to tell the difference between Chrome and Nikasil.

Further reading - Nikasil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
