replace rings? maybe more

But its got almost 1000 hours, give or take on the motor, with nothing but valve checks, and shimming the valves once.
the shop I deal with said maybe replace the rings in it, just to freshin it up, and have a look inside make sure everything was in order.
anyone have any input on this, should I? maybe do a bit more inside, cam, or a high compression piston since I have it apart?
only downside of a higher compression piston, I want to keep running on pump gas, any experience with having to run race gas after bumping to a higher compression piston?
also look at valves ect. see if I need to replace anything in the valve train before riding season gets into full swing here in the AZ desert

went to ET the first time last week, but was riding the 300. borrowing a leakdown gauge setup on sunday, I'll check it then.
and your right, just hear things abut piston skirts failing ect. and I ride the WR a lot. and rev the piss out of it at the dunes for 2 seasons now.
although the KTM300 should take its spot as a duner now.
where do you ride?

You and I both know you could use a headlight upgrade.
