    Depends if you want to break into the bottom half of the engine dude? scratch
    I'd do a piston and rings, check your valves for wear to see if they're sharp on the edges and if they're leaking past the seals, do valve stem oil seals
    Obviously none of that means anything to you so over to Pete lol!

    Cheers mate.

    That was pretty much my plan months ago, piston, rings, valve stem seals. But Dude assured me "nnnnnaaaaahhhhhhh mate, its fine, my CRM is on its original piston so the ktm dont need one either" Very Happy
    Do the chain and sprockets FFS too lol!

    Piston and rings, cambearings, waterpum oil seal ,camchain and tensioner ,valve stem oil seals is going to be the bare minimum to change its probably going to need inlet valves too
