Doug, man, I'd seriously take it to a good machine shop and have them run a good Sunnen type hone through there. It will leave better cross hatching and will true up the cylinder. My guy does it for 10 bucks each, if he only has to do a light cleanup. Also, another thing I found...bolt the exhaust manifold (if you're using trips) to the cylinder before you have it honed, as the bolts slightly distort the bore. This will make sure its true when its all together.

Hey you bstrd,,,,,,lol....I got one at the shop....dont use a ball hone on two stroke because of the ports...I got the good one at the shop.....but....you will have to actually come up there in person on a friday morning and I will show you how its done.........this is the best free offer your gonna get.

dave i'm almost positive he was refferring to what would surely be a feeble attempt on my part to hone it myself.i'm pretty this jug will clean up fairly easily.it didn't seize and its an iron sleeved cylinder
