piston stuck, help!

ok, so I did the ol rope in the cylinder trick to lock up the engine so I could tighten down my flywheel bolt on my kx125. Problem is I used a shoe string (only thing I had) and now the shoe string is wedged between the cylinder and the piston and I'm not sure how to get it out without damaging either the piston or cylinder. Any ideas? I've got the engine out of the bike with the cylinder head off and the cylinder nuts off so the cylinder is loose.

never mind, got it! Disaster averted... for now
