Default pinching a buggy engine

what is needed to pinch a sleeve to increase or restore compression and how do you do it. I have an XTM 24.7 engine and I would like to restore life to the engine if possible without replacing the piston and sleeve. thanks for your time and knowledge.

Definitely, your best bet is to send it to rayaracing.com. Unless you spend the money for a set-up like rayaracing has you'll only damage the sleeve...

I bought a set of his equipment and do "pinching" locally with great success. We are able to extend the life of engines with it...
