I was going to cross hatch my new cylinder but decided against it because the chrome coating being so thin.
This man is correct. There is no cross hatching in the Chinese 2 stroke engines. The cylinder is chromed and Opti-2 is not a true synthetic.

I second what Bairdco has said. My best engines were broken in running Opti @ 100:1. I've never had a problem and they run great.
