You won't get any noticeable power increase. Even if you bored it as far as you can you only get a few more cc's. It may be time to step up to the next size bike.

Are you boring it to get more power or is the cylinder damaged? If it is damaged, you really should get it re-plated if it has the Nikasil lining (not sure on the 83 models).

As far as the crank is concerned, you will probably have some piston to cylinder head clearance issues and will need to get a thicker base gasket or stack some together.

Not always, you just have to be willing to look for the deals.
