Darn, just noticed this morning that I've got some scoring in the cylinder wall. One deeper scratch that lightly catches my nail, and a patch of light ones just enough to feel rough to my fingernail.
I can see a little bit of factory crosshatch near the top, but everywhere else in the cylinder looks a bit worn.
I think it's from me removing/installing the piston, but IDK.
Should I be concerned? Or should I hone it just to make sure?
Since it is a steel bore, I think I'd be ok with honing it, but first I want to know if it's necessary.
Main pic is just a general pic of the cylinder, and the 2 close ups are the areas of concern. 3rd pic is the one I'm most worried about.
