Well, the good news is you probably will not need a new jug. suzuki makes a couple of oversized pison and rings. Assuming that it has not been bored you have quite a bit of life left in the bike. Cylinder is probably out of round due to wear. After you disassemble top end, take the rings off of the piston carefully. Put the rings in the cylinder and push about half way down the bore with the piston to square the rings in the bore. Hold the cylinder up to the light and you will probably see light somewhere between the rings and the cylinder indicating out of round. This is also the time when you measure the ring end gap with a feeler gauge to see how it compares to specs. Only cure to restore is to have it bored to the next oversize (OS). Which OS depends on how much wear there is. Please keep in mind that most wear occurs from foreign material in the cylinder. Usually from lack of maintenance on the air filter. Can also be introduced through the fuel or poorly fitting air box to carb connection. Sometimes through the throttle cable into the top of the carb. All that said, it is a two stroke and changing rings should be considered a maintenance item.
