I think the big end bearing gave out on Sarah's bike.

250 4-stroke. But even my 2-stroke can't rev that high!

Check the VIN against the KTM crankshaft recall for certain model years of the 250 4 stroke. Might get lucky.

Aftermarket (Athena) gaskets kits are find, but use the KTM head gasket. The engines are pretty straightfoward to work on with the KTM manual. Nothing too tricky except the crankshaft radial play. Take the cases, new crank bearings and a new crank to a shop to let them handle that. MotorbikesPlus did a good job on mine.

And add an hour meter to the bike once you rebuild it.

I think She's going big bore from the last conversation we had and Josh is probably going to do the work. I bet She's got 300 hrs on the bottom end, so not sure what KTM will do
