In the end I want this bike to be reliable and bulletproof, so I would assume that it's best to stay with stock engine components. There's lots of aftermarket components for these bikes, which is awesome. Any recomendations here will be appreciated. I can clearly see after a quick search that finding the parts to make this bike run won't be a huge issue, finding some time will be, though!
A complete engine gasket kit will include valve guide seals (it did w/ my XR600). I would stay with stock rockers and cam like you say - the oem rockers for my 600 were ~$41 each.
