Question Bought a 2002 polaris virage 700. Needs repair.

The pistons on this virage has been stuck to the cylinder walls. Im not sure how long they have been like this, I purchased it in this condition. Does anyone have any ideas on how to free them?

Soak them down with Liquid Wrench or PB Blaster and let it set, re apply, and sit. Prob. going to take a couple of days.

if there's rust on the pistons, chances are extremely high that the bottom end is trash also. Any rust at all on the lower rod bearings or main bearings makes the crank useless.
