Where/who did rebore? There are differing opinions depending on quality of the job. The most important things is to bed in the rings, not simply glaze them. So about three 20 min cycles of full load low speed runs allowing the engine to cool down in between (heat cycles). Do some surfing there is lots of info available. If you simply ride around for 500kms or as they do in Indonesia leave the bike idling for an hour all you do is the glazing thing.

Change the oil if you haven't done so already. 100% synthetic Shell Rimula is best if you can find it and want to pay for it. Semi-sythetic oil isn't worth the bottle it come in.
