Wondering if piston could be reused with new rings

Recommended Posts

I have the stock piston out of my ktm exc 520. its forged of course... The anti friction coatings on the skirts are pretty much worn off but besides that the piston looks real good. since the piston is the stock forged one, could i just put new rings on the piston and call it good. I think these forged stock pistons are almost bullet proof they even feel slightly heavier the aftermarket ones.

i would never put an old piston back if the friction coatings are worn off. way cheaper to buy a piston and rings now, than just rings now and a piston-rings-cylinder later
