Default MC65 Parts: Ridiculous prices

I was looking into shaping up the MC65, thought I'd start with a new piston ring. But I was in for a surprise.
The swedish importer lists the single piston ring at 753 SEK, thats more than $115
A piston is at more than $300. For a 45mm piston? Its a bl**dy moped engine. I can get an aftermarket 70cc/15hp cylinder/piston/head/gasket kit for less than that.
A stock cylinder/piston kit is at mind numbing $1077

WHAT!

I hate the thought, but I might have to go orange for my kid.

You gasser dealers on the forum, any comments/insights in this matter?

Check with the boys over at GO Fasters. They are more than willing to help out any GG rider and very nice to deal with.

The engine is a Derbi, buy the parts from them. The GG part is a variation of the Derbi numbers and a Derbi dealer should be able to decipher it.

I have been down the Derbi path, its a dead end. The parts numbers in the gasgas parts list deciphers as 50cc parts at the Derbi end. So no luck there.

Maybe I should just shut up and pay up...

I might have Googled my to a possible solution. Seems like the little Gasser in fact is a Conti RX65. I have mailed a price question to the swedish Conti importers.

See any resemblance??

Well I back on the mission of trying to find out what Derbi engine is in the 65 and if there are any cross over parts. Derbi by the look of things never made a 65 so it must have started out as another cc of engine and then was modified by GG. I am waiting e mail from Derbi to see if they can match up any of the engine numbers I have. I wonder where the barrel came from Derbi or GG?

I'm going to see if the piston matches with the KX 65 and or the SX 65. Would be great to find a big bore kit. eg 70cc.

Has anyone else had any luck?
