Difference between one piston ring and two on a stock 38mm puch piston for 50cc?

Just google "2 stroke 1 piston ring vs 2"

Gist is that 1 ring gives higher rpms but less durability than 2 ring. I've even seen 2 ring pistons where the top ring seizes up but the bottom ring doesn't and the bike continues to run (edited)

Agreed .

My FA50 has a 2 ring piston , but , I'm currently running only a top ring as I broke a ring . It runs just fine . I might get new rings , someday , ;)
