how do I see what type pistons I have
I am planning on getting Pro-X piston kits... but where does it say what type of pistons I use.. I believe it's on the cylinders, but where on the cylinders?

Looking at the exhaust side there is a number stamped on the right hand side of the cylinder

Looking at the top of the cylinder, on the exhaust side, lower rear corner, you will see a number  on this picture. that is where the cylinder size stamping is located. This cylinder is #3 So this stamping is close to the powervalve bracket on #3. It will be in the same location on #1 and #2

Look well in this picture here in the location I just mentioned above and you should be able to see a 10,6,14 on #1 cylinder, 2 and 3 respectively

Thanks Billy! I have one question though, the Pro-X kits say like A,B, or C how do I know if a 14 is an B or what not..

also how do i take my pistons out? I know I have to take my cylinders off..
do I just unbolt the screws that hold them down?
like when your looking down into the motor.. the screws around the cylinders, undo those and the cylinders come out? And then how do I get the pistons out? Thanks..

Is there a reason you are replacing the pistons ? You may only need to do rings.
Grab the manual and check your clearences. Those stock pistons are pretty damn durable.

i talked to carl about it.. my skis been running super lean, and the pistons are dead black...
i will be installing new rings, and getting carbs modded/rejetted so it won't be running so lean.. thought it would be better to also get new pistons..
