The best way is to take off your pipe and then using a 5mm ball end hex head wrench remove the y-pipe (take off the heat shield first).
Use a nice bright white light and look right at your piston. Look for the black little freckles on the rings....pitting. Now you can take it to the dealer and get the 05 chrome rings put in or do it yourself if you don't have warranty anymore.
