    Default GS650 engine rebuild availability.

    Hi.
    My GS650 has been running good for the past 2 years now but as the bike gets older and older, I want to do some ressearch on the possibility of doing an engine rebuild in the coming years (as prevention, but also as a project, as it would give my the chance to get it perfect). As I was surfing the internet for parts, I noticed that while gaskets sets could be hard, but not impossible to find, I haven't found pistons and rings yet. Im not looking to rebore it to a 700+cc, just looking for some standard replacement pistons or maybe 30thou over. Anybody knows where I could get some of these parts? 650 engine parts seems to be a bit rarer than 550 or 750.

    How many miles on the engine? GS engines are tough so unless it's got inordinately high miles new standard size OEM rings are likely all you would need, not new pistons.
