ok with my build up i'm planning on putting standard bore pistons, when changing from stocks to the srp pistons, do i need to have a machining shop hone the cylinder walls?

It needs to be honed. If you do not have the right touch or feel for it or are very nervous then yes take it to a machine shop. I have in the past honed my own, I have even rehoned what the machine shop did cause I was not satisfied. The last one I had done, bore and hone, the hone was better than I have ever done.

hone it urself. Its a piece of cake I swear. Just need to think before you act... plan how fast you are gonna move up and down... etc etc. I'm sure there are "HOW TO's" somewhere online.

Honed my brothers GSR, no probs...

Yeah if you have some common sense and get a feel for it, not too fast not too slow, good motion up and down you can do a good job. But still, some people this kinda stuff is easy, some think way way too much about it.

make sure to use plenty of oil. ive always honed my own motors. get one of those containers that can hold standard oil, and you can pressurize with a regular air hose. as you are moving up and down do a few occasional squirts of oil

I coat the cylinder walls REAL good with some oil. Using a bottlebrush hone I go fairly slow. You'll know when you're getting it because the walls will to start to "pull" on the hone more. IMO I would not use a stone type hone because they are much less forgiving.
