    Thats a stock 81mm OEM Polaris piston. They did make changes to the piston over the years, but Polaris only carries the latest "L" ring version. On you piston, is the top piston ring at the very top of the piston? Does it have an "L" shape when looked at from the side?

    Yes, the top ring has a L shape to it.

    Just order a replacement set of rings, STD bore...you'll get the right ones...but i'll warn you, they are $70 /pr! A new WSM Platinum piston kit costs the same, FYI.
