XRman, It's always best to hone a little when installing rings. Yes, like Kyron says, you can install the rings by hand. Just be very careful. The most difficult part will be the cam and chain. Good luck.

Under $30.... BUT you'd better take the cylinder off first and have it checked to be sure it dosnt need to be bored. Then you'd need a piston too. Are you sure it isnt the valves??

You should sell the bike as is.............

SELL IT! DON'T BE LIKE ME AND FACK UP HARD CORE!! Seriously, four strokes are money pits when you take them apart, it isn't only goin to be the rings, it will be hone job, valves, have to get the valves installed, cam chain will need to be adjusted(unless you can do it) and they are gonna tell you that you need a new fagin piston or some dumb crap like that.
