Hey guys I'm staring to replace my crankcase, due to some damage from a crash to the engine block. Can I reuse the same piston rings or would I need to replace them? The bike only has 9k miles and I don't want to replace them if its not necessary.

Change em ? This is a difficult question, which parts to renew ? Main bearings, big end bearings, piston pins, gaskets, seals, valve seals ? What would be a bike shop mechanic's agenda ? Minimum cost to shop ?
Personally, as an exercise, I would have to Plastigauge the bearings and record findings.
Being an eternal tight arse (descended from Scotsman) If it ain't broke don't fix it !
Rings are an easy one but wont make any change to performance, at 9k miles.
