Question about kawasaki Motorcycles
1. How do you know that there is water in a cylinder?
2. Check for spark. Harbor freight has a cheap spark checking tool.
3. Check for gas. Should be able to pull the fuel line off the injector pump and turn the key on. fuel should come out.
caution******dont do both at the same time
Most likely if it cranks (engine turns over) but doesn't start, one of the two above is not happening, although, it could also be an injector pump.

Yes, you can, but not exactly recommended. If you are going to go that deep into it, then might as well do everything else. However, being unemployed tends to have a negative impact on the wallet....
I suspect it is more than just rings. I think that the walls have been scored badly as well. You may be able to use a borescope to take a peak into the cylinder through spark plug hole. Move the piston to bottom of stroke, and see what you can see. If scarred, much work will be needed. If hatches look alright, then you might be able to get away with just rings.
What kind of compression are you getting on #1 vs #2? This also might be a blown headgasket into an oil passage, or the head (perhaps block?) is ever so slightly warped in this area.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the quick response. Very much appreciated your input, all makes sense and got my mind on the right track again. Thanks"
SOURCE: blown cylinder head gasket
are you sure the cylinder head gasket has blown and not the rocker cover gasket this is at the top of the engine its rubber if it has it takes just a few 10mm bolts to undo then replace the gasket and no need to time up'.if you have the head gasket blown very rare you should buy a workdhop manual
