Kawasaki Engine: Top End Unfreezing

After just a couple days of soaking the piston/cylinder with ATF, the Kawi engine magically unfroze itself. I gave a gentle turning of the flywheel, and it just decided to turn over. I pulled the cylinder off, then drove out the piston pin and removed the piston. I'm now soaking the main crankcase chamber with ATF.

Exciting photo of a clean piston and a dirty engine case:
