Perhaps some of the most important mechanical parts of the engine; if the piston/con-rod/crankshaft assembly is not right the engine cannot give its best, mechanical clatter and poor performance is something Kawasaki enthusiasts can live without!
Renewing as many parts as possible at the same time, during the rebuilding process, is almost like an insurance policy - make sure that when you rebuild the engine it will not require stripping down again because of a failure of one key component. The balance-shaft should also be checked thoroughly at the same time to ensure the engine runs as smoothly as it did when new.
