Kx125 rebuild problem

I've recently bought a 98 kx125 for a few hundred dollars under the impression it just needed piston and rings which still seems to be the case, but I wasn't giving the old piston that came out of it and the shops say they don't know where to get a piston bc it's been bored over. So I'll try asking here. The shop measured the cylinder bore at 57.5 so does anyone on here know where I can get piston and rings for that size??

What's the OEM piston clearance supposed to be? Off that, we can work out which position size you'll need - but for reference I know you can find <a href="https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/231872043611 ">Wiseco</a> overbore pistons for the KX125 all over eBay.

I'm in the same situation as you are but my cylinder is measuring 55.5mm and can only find either a 54mm or 56mm piston not sure if other pistons from other makes or models would be interchangeable
