Hey guys just pulled my head and the piston looks good so just gonna replace the rings , I am gonna hone the cylinder as there is a little bit of scoring markes on the exhaust size not enough for a re bore I think, Can I just use any cylinder hone from amazon of the store or are they specific?

What bike?
Is the cylinder plated?
2 stroke or 4 stroke?
Have you measured the cylinder?
Have you ever done a hone job before?

Measure things and refurbish to spec. Or buy a set of rings, head ,base gasket. Take some 600 grit wet or dry, spray the paper ,cylinder bore with WD40 and make several up and down passes ,while using a twisting motion. Wash the cylinder bore thoroughly, and slap it together.

May be a waste of time and money if the bore is toast. Try your luck.

It’s a 1989 Suzuki ds80 there is parts of the cylinder that are gold colour so I assume plated..? The piston measures 49mm but they sell 49 and 50 mm+ pistons would I be able to buy the 50 mm and hone the cylinder that extra 1 mm??? or would it be best to just get the 49mm and take a take a few passes with the 600 grit , im not sure how much better the cylinder will be after I hone it..

I’m new to the whole bike Seen I have a lot to learn

Appreciate the help guys

You can't hone it that much larger. A bore job is the only way, but again measure the cylinder before doing anything.
