I'm about the same build. Still I love my thumper even though I may sell it. I prefer newer stuff anyway.

I cracked a piston skirt in my 250 in may, only thing that didnt need replacing was the transmission and cases. total cost to overhaul the entire engine was about 1300$, and that was a shop putting the bottom end together for me. I am willing to bet that NEW kawi cost at least 2000 for a rebuild

I have never had an issue with my 700. I change the oil and I change the plug. 3 years no issues.
