take trx's advice..don't go piston cheap..you may or may not come out in the long run..but..2 or 3 hours of cuss words ain't worth it..lol..go wiseco piston kit all the way..yeah..they are not cheap..but..if you install it right..and it runs right..it's worth every dollar for it !..make sure to coat your jug with fresh motor oil before you install the new piston and rings..makes it slide in alot easier, less chance of breaking your new rings this way.

Yeah, always try to use quality parts on an engine. You will come out a lot better in the long run. Weak parts in an engine just won't last.
