The rebuild depends on who does it, and wether you can take the engine out yourself.

Better to get a "preventitive" rebuild rather than waiting for the engine to go Pop... rekon on somewhere ITRO £300 - £400 if you just give them the bike.

As for bits, Levers and pegs are plentiful thanks to all the L-Plate-Loonies on RS125s crashing lots as the parts are interchangable.

For Engine parts, most tuners have their own suppliers, so ask around. I use Bob Farnham, who has always been helpful.
