Head bored and honed?

Did you mean cylinder? I never heard of honing a head, though some folks get the head machined to change compression and squish.

Keep in mind if you need the cylinder bored and honed most newer cylinders have a cylinder coating (nikasil or such). So after maching it needs recoating which is not typically done locally. DO a search and find some decent shops to send it off to.

Check Eric Gorr site for some excellent service

If you have an XR or such (with cast iron cylinder), then the cylinder could get machined/honed locally. Most any engine machine shop can do this. I have gotten my jetski cylinders bored locally here in Greensboro. Just bring the new piston for the shop to give you the right bore size to match the piston size.
