First off, there’s no reason to replate a cylinder unless there’s a score in it, or it’s out of spec, which is unlikely.  The reason they don’t allow replating in the stock Honda class, is that part of the replating process is to clean up the slag left behind from the plating operation.  The “clean up”  would be hard to regulate, and in the right hands, could be a big advantage…  And as stated above, you can get a new cylinder for about the price of a replate, so would you anyway?

Run a fine flex hone through it, wash with soap and water real good, put a fresh top end in, good to do….
