LT-z50 motor rebuild

My 3yo has a Suzuki LT-Z50 4 wheeler that needs a new top end. Unfortunately, the piston can't be swapped without splitting the cases, so I've chosen to farm out the job. Also want to mill the head and get compression above the stock 8.4 CR.

These are the shops I considered;
K's Motorsport- supporting vendor and I sorta know the service mgr. Suzuki dealer so they should know the motor.

EBR- just around the corner from me and good reputation with four strokes.

Rats Racing- seem to have a solid reputation and not too far away.

I've decided to go with K's since they're a Suzuki dealer, but wanted to post this before I drop off the motor. Anyone have feedback that might suggest I've made a poor choice?

Thanks

Splitting cases is not that bad especially on a smaller bike.

Thanks.

I drove out to K's, but didn't leave the motor because I didnt get a good customer service vibe. Dropped by Metric, too. That guy seems awesome, but his labor rate is more aligned with a real engine and not so much a puny 50cc 4T.

Hate to be an askhole, but I ended up at EBR and they have the motor. Hoping to hear from them later this week with a qoute and plan to rebuild...
