Of course a new top end is about a 15 minute job on that bike. But my KE125 had the rings ruined a couple of times from sucking beach sand through the boots and from cracking that engine case over the carb.
The base gasket is leaking. Just ordered one (and head gasket) yesterday. I was thinking it would take an 1.5 hrs. You must drink faster than me.
