Which Way?

Recommended Posts

i got a new ringset for my xr 80. the two top rings will fit in either groove on the piston. one is solid black and the other is black/brown with a dull chrome color around the outside. which groove does each ring go in. sorry for starting a new thread but i couldnt find a definite answer.

Ring with the shiny bits to the top ring grove. Its plated and hard to cope with heat, dirt etc. Black ring is second and then oil controls. If rings have markings they face up.
