Hi all, I got an old KX 80 from a buddy at work.  The thing is actually in pretty good shape but definitely needs a top end. Just a few quick questions:

VIN on the frame: JKAKXWG11GA007334

Serial #? on bottom end: KX080EE031260

On the cylinder, I found the numbers 0.0826
On the piston, I found the numbers D00G8, underneath that is 539M04800, and underneath that is CD.

What can you all tell me about this KX?  I think it is an '86, maybe.

I'm going to need the cylinder honed and/or sleeved, and then I am obviously going to need a new piston, rings, pivot bearing, wrist pin, clips, etc.  Can anyone point me in the direction of a good source for those parts?  Anyone know of a good place to get the cylinder honed/sleeved.  The closer to NYC the better.

The bike is just going to be a beat around bike for my kid to ride around the property, learn how to use a clutch, etc. 

Lastly, no power valve on this bike.  Kind of surprised by that.  What year did they start coming with a pv?

Thanks in advance.  All info welcome.

good chance it's an '86 going off the VIN chart...
post a pic or two of the bike, so we can get a look at it, when you get a chance

Will do.  However, the top end is off right now.  As are the rad shrouds, tank, pipe, rad, etc.

Yup, same bike, although that one is a bit nice than ours.

Now just to get the cylinder taken care of and get the necessary parts for the top end.  Should be up and running in no time.
