    Stock bore is 89mm. The rest isn't needed to determine whether you need to bore or not. Replacememnt pistons go up by .25mm in Wiseco.

    i measured my bore and i have an 89.072 with a 0.391mm piston to wall clearance. my ring gap was 0.029" or 0.7366mm

    is it time to bore?

    You need to measure at several points to ensure you arent out of round. Measure high, low, and at several points in the circumference. If you measured the ring gap from the used rings theres no way to get an accurate measurement as the rings are likely worn.

    You could get by with a set of rings, but only if you're not out of round. If you're out of round, it's time to bore.

    Dang, thats a solid cylinder. Deglaze and re-ring it.
