If you have a new piston then you should have the needed paper work to figure out your ring gap.

Always use the piston manufactures specs, Yamaha did not make that piston or rings so why would you gap them to there spec.

When they're available, that's fine, but for a huge majority of the time, you'll find that the OEM and aftermarket rings will call for end gap numbers that are very nearly identical.

Compression rings will run roughly .003" per inch of bore, while oil rings are closer to .005" per inch of bore.
