hi, i have a guy doing a top end rebuild to my 02 rancher es. he is boring it out and changing the vale seals. i was wondering, is it a good idea to bore it. i heard alot of bad things about boring the ranchers. it smoked like crazy when i droped it off to him, he said either bore it or replace cylinder. i dont really want to replace the cylinder due to the high cost. thanks,

Boring is fine as long as it's done right. I don't like to bore the cylinder to the limits that it can be bored, though. The thicker the cylinder walls are, the better the heat dissipates.
