I'd also chase down a used engine. The if you want to rebuild one you could rework your original one and still have a bike to ride. The problem with rebuilding is the cost of the parts gets pretty high. If you go to the bother of splitting the case then it doesn't make sense not to redo the rings and/or pistons, valves, bearings, etc., ect. Those pieces are pretty expensive. The other factor is that if you have a good engine they tend to run near forever if you maintain it reasonably, bearings, and piston rings and valves are very long lived. Water pumps and stators are the two main parts along with fuel pumps that do fail now and then but they aren't terribly difficult or expensive to replace if you do your own work.
