You cant 'yank a cylnder' on these bikes I'm afraid

Only the heads

The cylinders are part of the main casting

I'd pull the head first and check the valves this will also allow you to take a look at the pistons and cylinder walls

If you wish to then remove the pistons, you'll have to remove the front cover and undo the

big ends and pull the pistons and rods out of the top.

36 thou sounds a bit soon to have to renew rings though

If its been laid up since 92 the lack of 'percieved' suction may be due to sticky carb pistons but sticking my hand over the inlet is not a method of diagnosis I'd have a lot of faith in.
