Why did you blow yours up? What is it that your bike needs and why?

What needs rebuilding Pavel'? Is it just a top end freshen up, or a split the cases full rebuild? Nobody could really quote you without knowing what you need done. :cry: I would be interested to see what the labour charge is per hour in the US. Over here we charge on average $65.00 an hour :cry: Hopefully someone closer to home will respond..... :cry:

What type of re-build? Your going to be looking at a lot of money. I suggest you buy the parts and find a T.T.'r in your area that knows what they are doing and ask them to teach you.

I just had my upper done, piston, seals, and had the cyclinder sent off that was $200 of the $700 I spent I think my guy charged my 5 hours of labor, the previous owner did not change oil very often or clean the air filter

I was thinking about putting a new piston/rings in over the winter. Nothing is wrong but I plan on racing it this upcoming year.

Someone with half a brain can put rings and piston in this bike. Too bad most dealers dont even have a brain, so your better off doing it yourself.
