Question 96 Skidoo mxz 583 needs piston

Hi all
I am new to this forum ,
My Skidoo 96 mxz 583 melted the stator side piston, we had the cylinder cleaned and honed and now I need to replace that piston. My question is do I go with OEM piston and rering both cylinders. or use aftermarket such as Wiseco kit.
Both are about the same money but the wiseco kit would be replaceing both pistons.

A stock replacement, such as Kimpex, etc will do the job just fine. Wiseco makes a great piston, but since this is not being raced, etc, why spend the extra money? You can also leave the other side alone this way!
