I even pulled apart an old H1 triple that had 3 different size bores. You just never know. People will sometimes just keep seizing one side without ever really getting to the source of the problem (often an air leak) and keep boring that side larger.

With that crank rebuilt it looks like you're on your way to a smooth running ride. Keep em coming.
Dead on , get a fresh topend since you have already done the crank JMHO
