Closing this thread out. Fixed the issue with a degloss on the jug and a new set of rings. Has WAYYYYY more power now, starts instantly. Thanks to Jim for diagnosing via photos.

I replaced all the gaskets while i was in there as well. No more exhaust pop!

Thats great to hear :D I am surprised it was that though with a relatively new engine but these happen. I hope you did both cylinders though.

Now go out and enjoy - I just did a 100km drive yesterday out in the country and while slow was a great drive.
