I had to replace a cylinder at 800 hours on a factory new engine. I had something get stuck under an exhaust valve, which overheated the valve and seat. At the time, I was able to obtain a new Lycoming cylinder locally the same day. I then sent the old cylinder out and had a new guide and valve installed and the entire cylinder overhauled. It took about 2 weeks to overhaul the cylinder. I keep this spare cylinder in case I need it in the future, it's on hand.
In today's environment, you may have a hard time getting a new cylinder. Update It appears that Airpower and Aircraft Specialties has the 05K2-1104 in stock.....
