SOURCE: mass flooding piston cylinder
This sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the carb. Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb and clean it with a spray carb cleaner. Be sure main jet and float needle are clear. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb. Next Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).
Install an inline fuel filter. Turn the gas on, wait a moment for the float bowl to fill with gas then give it a try.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: bore size
The cylinder bore is just that > the bore size of the cylinder. The piston clearance should be 0.0015 to 0.003. Anything more than .005 and the piston is too loose.

SOURCE: max size of cylinder
The biggest bore would be 1mm over.The standard bore on that bike is 65.0mm
so you could bore up to 66mm and to be a 900cc you would need a bore size of 68.5 mm
So your answers
Please take time to rate this fixya

take your cylinder to a mechanic and have them measure it. If you're using Weiseco forged pistons you could use a 66.50 but the factory tolorance is .003 so you are right on the edge of needing to have the cylinder re-bored. Weiseco pistons are set for the size of the bore and then they compensate for the tolorances. Don't forget that you will loose a little when you have it honed too.

first be sure to place the rings in the cylinder and check to see there is enough ring end gap so they do not bind when they get hot. The numbers/letters face up. The gaps should be placed around the piston so they do not line up.(120 degrees for the oil rings and 120 degrees for the upper and lower scraper ring plates) Of the upper two rings the lighter color ring goes on top, it should have a rounded edge top and bottom. The second ring usually will have a bevel , scraping edge down ( again numbers/letters face up). Before installing rings be sure to roll the ring around in the ring groove to look for binding spots. If you find a tight spot , use a point file or fine cut file to clean it up. be very careful when you install your rings so do not bend or break them.
