    So pretty much . 5 inch down more like a divet. I can feel it with my nail but my nail doesn't get caught on it

    So what are my options. Do I need to bore all cylinders and new pistons rings on all 3? Can I sleeve the one cylinder and hone and re ring them all? Can you only do 1 cylinder because of balance. I'm trying to not have to buy all new pistons that's going to be 700 bucks in parts but it is what it is

    are there any other options besides the Riva Piston Kits that are quality. there $205 a piston and i found Wiseco Pistons for 140 each with the rings ect. If anyone has unused pistons lol shoot me a price

    Was not trying to advertise cheaper products BTW. Im a Landscaper... just tryin to have fun on the water without also being poor... If GH offered a deal on buying a set Id WANT to buy from them and they DESERVE business but that doesnt change how much cash is in my pocket.

    Take it to a machine shop and see what they recommend. Hard to tell how bad it is with pictures.

    in my 06 215 service manual it says you can run one oversized piston and be fine. But idk if people around here actually suggest to do that...

    I'm assuming if the weight of all the pistons are the same then it's fine. machine shop got back with me today and said that they don't have any way to hold my block so they can't do it anyhow I'll figure out something else. Thank you guys for all of your information

    Motorcycle shops can do it. The engine is pretty much a motorcycle engine. There is no room for error on these engines should you touch or replace anything on it.
