Make sure you change the oil and filter regularly. That should keep it happy for a long time.

Back on topic...

there is no need to rebuild your motor, gixxers are like toasters, when they break you throw 'em out and get a new one!

Even if the engine did give out, it wouldn't cost a whole lot to fix I would imagine. Piston rings, maybe some valves... or by a junk yard/used engine for cheap and keep going
