Hi guys i have a 2008 outlaw 525 that blew the rings out so I decided to build it to a 540 with a wisco 97mm piston. I was wondering what the ring gap should be for the two rings and any other words of advise or help anyone could offer me! Thanks!

I don't know the ring gap specs, but here are a couple topics on big bore kits.

The general consensus is that the most reliable option is the KTM 540 kit if funds and availability allow.

I'm not entirely sure who did the work but where im from a place called High Voltage does all the engine work and they had it sent out. Also i planned on a hmf comp. k&n air filter and 21 in tires on the rear if they can fit. And is there anyway to make the bike run cooler? My temp light was always coming on before i tore it down

There are some cooling mods you can do.

But before doing the mod I would check to make sure the cooling system is properly bled, make sure the radiator fins aren't plugged or damaged, and check or replace the temp sensor.  Air in the system is a common cause for cooling issues, and a bad temp sensor can cause false readings or temp lights.  Basically, you want to make sure that the simple things aren't sending you on an expensive wild goose chase.

On the IRS outlaws, it seems to depend on what kind of heal guards you're using.  Some don't leave very much room for a bigger tire.
