Question about boring a jug.

I need to do a rebuild but the machine shop I dropped the jug off at is an automotive machine shop. I decided to bring it to somewhere that has experience with atv parts. Anyway I confused on the procedure. Are they bored first then plated to the right piston spec or what. I heard the old plating is too hard to bore. It had a new .040 wiseco top end already but it smoked and overheated. I guess the previous owner didn't do something right when it was redone.

You can contact a member on here from Rowlett,TX his name is TinkerMan. He might can help you. I say him because he is located near you. You also might try Hit the Gas they are a supporting vendor. Partsland bores cylinders and sleeves them website is partsland.com It might be worth comparing prices and turnaround time.

(Currently I don't own a Polaris but I work on them all the time and get to ride cutomers for test rides. Maybe soon I will be a Polaris owner.)
