1996 400L sportsman top end rebuild

Hello all. New to the forum. Have a 96 400L Sportsman and need to replace top head gasket. While having it apart, thought I would pull the head and change rings. Cylinder walls look good but had a very small score on the cylinder wall. I see you can order rings and piston that are standard, .010, .020 , .030 and .040. Are these the different sizes that are the bore size if you had to bore the cyclinder wall. If I have cylinder wall bored, I would have the machinest use one of these bore sizes listed above? Thanks in advance for your help.

i let the machine shop pick out the size of the piston, let them do the work. you may want to specify a wiseco brand piston, they seem to hold up better
