    2001 XLT 1200 piston selection

    2 yrs ago I had an sbt long block put in my ski, 20hrs later the skirt breaks off # 3 piston.
    What would be a better piston to use? How do I tell if I have the coating on the cylinders?? This was bought as a complete long block, not a reman of my old one.
