They are not available yet.

Your best bet is to see if the cylinder will clean up and stick a new piston and rings in it?
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

There's been some discussions on the 500 series Husqvarna's galled cylinders

The discussions were from talking about leaking decompression valves, leaking transfer cover plate gaskets, to running 50:1 oil ratios

Just checked your OEM options 555 complete top end is $225 or a 562 is $300.
My distributor has the 555 kits in stock but not the 562.

That price differense has to be "artificial" - but which saw related prices aren't?  ;D

He could just buy the 555 top end and switch the transfer covers off his damaged cylinder.

I believe so, but am not 100% sure the basic cylinder is exactly the same.
