How often do you think a drop damages a cylinder? Valve covers and sometimes heads get damaged in a drop. Cylinders not so much. Oh, it can happen. It's just not something that I'd worry about. If the cylinder is damaged I'd be more worried about the state of my leg than how much it will cost to repair the bike.
As for rebuilds...
who rebuilds oilheads/hexheads?
