When assembled the Piston sits approximately 1.5mm below Cylinder deck on TDC inside the bore. Would you suggest to just let the cylinder be and call it a day without worrying about detonation or gas octane? Because that would be absolutely wonderful if true.

Also how much would you believe It would hinder the performance of the engine if no corrections are made to the Cylinder?

I believe the Cam chain tensioner has enough travel left in it that it will tension the chain tight without any slack, the retard timing causing the engine to peak out at higher rpm's I can deal with as well, provided I am recommended to shave the cylinder, if suggested not to then both the above would become irrelevant.

The only confusion that keeps me right now is to shave the cylinder or not.
