950 clutch slave o-rings?

My 950 ADV's clutch slave is leaking. I pulled the slave apart, and the cylinder looks fine, but the o ring on the piston itself fits loosely, so I am guessing that's the source of my problem.

Wv

Be sure to spend part of your time in WV on Route 19 over the mountains. Lots of twisties, and great scenery. Plus, it's a good north-south route that's an alternative to the highway.
