Clearance the piston? i wouldn't recommend that as you might get piston slap and or destroy your cylinder anymore. don't forget about side forces of the piston on the cylinder. if you take off any material even a couple thousands of an inch especially on the intake or exhaust side of the piston which is where you get those forces there is a good possibility you will just aggrivate the problem and your cylinder will become out of round. check your oil seals. air leaks from your oil seals commonly cause scoring or scuffing on the exhaust side of the piston. if you had a bad oil seal combined with the increased crankcase pressure of the kit that would explain why you seized in the first place.
