    Google " Vintage motorcycle parts honda ". You may find what you need there. The first site has 187 results for "piston". It is stupid that they are not in any type of organised list. Other sites are also there. I checked all the vendor sites on the right side of the screen. No joy. I have left a message at a possible source and am waiting for a call back. It doesn't seem that there are many of these bikes around. You may need to take a piston in to a Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha or Kawasaki shop and try to match up with one of their pistons.

Compression cylinder low #2 and #3 cylinders.

there are only four possibilities left:
1: valves are not fully seating - adjust rocker arm / cam
2: piston rings are bad - replace rings
3: holes in pistons - replace
4: cylinders out of round - most complicated repair, bore / machine cylinders and replace piston rings with oversized rings.

of course you could just have 'gunk' on the valves preventing full closure........

I'm looking at buying a 99 polaris xplorer 300 the

That should be a fairly simple job, if the cylinder wall is not scored. Pulling the head and cylinder is fairly easy and getting the piston off the rod is not hard either. You may want to go with an oversized piston and rings and then have the cylinder machined for that size piston.

Shashi, Check from the silensor. Put a finger in it. If there is black soot on the finger then you need a new set of piston rings. As you already have oil on the spark plug, it means new rings and or piston too.

My hyundai accent piston rings need a change how

If it needs rings, it probably needs a lot of other engine work, like a cylinder hone, or if it's out of spec, a bore, which means new pistons and on. You might look into a good remanufactured engine that comes with a warrantee if your has a ton of miles on it.
