not quite agree there...

cylinders dont get shiny after a thousand miles on the hone at all(mine wasnt)...takes a long time for that to happen

second the ring end gaps are positioned like honda says to so as to avoid any issues after the rebuild...or for the breakin milkes so you dont get any blow by...

the rings do move...since they ALL move its likely that they all are relatively in the same position when rebuilt...the actual piston has a circular motion to it...there is a little play at the rod, a little at the pin...etc...


a set of rings and a deglazing with even a ball hone would be better than nothing...
