Just wondering if someone could take a look at these and see if you think this piston is in decent shape. It looks ok to me. I have been fighting a no compression issue and I have replaced a bent intake valve. I just wanted to get an opinion before I begin reassembling the bike.

Looks significantly worn.  Better measure it for clearance in the bore.
