1994 zr 700 overheat please help

this is my first sled and i bought it about three weeks ago. The guy knew there was a problem with the clutch side cylinder and just disconnected the gas going to it so i would not notice. I was having an overheating problem and decided to pull the top end. On the same cylinder i noticed a lot of roughness and chafing. Also on the piston the edge was gone...like the crown was broken away a little. i will get a new piston for it. do you think that I wil be able to het the cylindar honed or will I have to replace it?it is not that bad. it is like the film is just gone of one side. also, the o-rings were shot so coolant was leaking into that cylindar, do you think that is what caused it?

If the wall plating is gone, you will either have to have the cyl replated or replace the jug.
You can try cleaning up the walls with muratic acid and then a light honing will be needed.

This is a good lesson for anyone to always do a compression check when looking at a used sled as there are many dishonest people out there waiting for someone to come along who have no idea what they are looking at.
