Eric Gorr recommends on 200cc and less once a year for lower end rebuilds, top end at the very least, my opinion, once a year. Check out the link to the left, good info and very competitive pricing if you decide to have someone else do it.

What you're looking for are the X and Z dimensions. X is the distance of the top of the piston (@ TDC) from the top of the cylinder deck, and Z is a measurment from the bottom/middle of the power valve to the top of the cylinder. You need a manual to get the specs.
