i have ordered the smallest piston rings for my moped

its a v1 minerelli and when i compress them all the way it wouldnt go in, like they compress and then they like touch eachother and seem like it will fit but wouldnt go down into the piston, like i had to hit it hard to make it go down? then left the top ring out and then had to force it out?

i think the rings are like .05 cm long or somthing?

should i cut them down a tiny bit, with a dremel and then try them?

thanks alot
