I purchased my rebuild kit off of Ebay for about 80 bucks you will need to know if it is standard bore or if your crank has been turned but it worked great for me here is the link.

I am always wary of ebay specials for something that I would be depending on going down the highway... but you can get lucky I guess...

I get my engine parts from Hawk Strictly Suzuki and G13b.com

I bought a rebuild kit off ebay a few yrs ago for abot $250.00 and it was top notch stuff. I had to have the block bored a littl but it gave me a little more hp. I had no problems with the motor afte the rebuild.

i found the kit on ebay then noticed it shipped from elmonte CA which is 5 minutes from where i live so i called and picked up the kit for $111 and i think that also included 4 new pistons and rings ..the whole rebuild kit was about 80 bucks im not sure but i remember seeing my reciept the other day from there and it was about 111 dollars...runs perfect had motor rebuilt with new bearings in the crank and head hot tanked and she runs and idles perect..The kit came with every single seal and gasket that you would need to do a full complete rebuild i just dropped off the motor and kit at the machine shop and picked it up assemebled with the head on already..super easy and alot less work for me just bolted on new clutch and tranny and i was rolling..i did put a new water pump and oil pump since might as well do eveything just for peace of mind a few bucks spent while its out is better than having to pull apart stuff if you cut corners and skimp out on something so minor in price but important in reliability/function.
