How many rings in a set?
I am going to re-ring my 98 gp1200. On the greenhulk OE store it says ring set for $67.00. Is this for all 6 rings or just 2? Seems like a high price for 2 rings.

When I have bought 2 stroke o/e yami, a set has been enough for 1 piston only...

Thanks, That seems like a steep price for two rings. Is there a better choice than OE rings. The engine is stock with the exception of a milled head.

That is an insane price for a set of (two) piston rings..
You can get a Pro-X piston kit for around $80-85 and that includes a set of rings..!!
I'm almost certain a set of Rik rings will interchange with OEM pistons just fine..
(They (Rik) are what are supplied with Pro-X piston kits)
These Rik ring kits can be bought for around $20 a piston..
If you're going to pull the motor apart to do this...
Then while you have the cylinder off, it would be a good idea to get the ports cleaned up/matched while you're at it..
The job Yamaha left from the factory is nothing short of disgraceful..
Another alternative would be to look into something like this.
Someone who is confident/capable with power tools could do this fairly easily..!!
This added in with the raised compression head you already have, some basic carb re-jetting..
Your ski would be a completely different machine indeed..
I would think also if you need to do a set of rings the carbs will be in need of some luvin too..
Something to think about..

Thanks, That is a lot better price for rings. Yes I am going to have it ported And possibly have oside bill do the carbs..
