Your lucky the cylinder is still good, I recently put a big bore on a kx85 that I bought not running, I feel lucky it didn't throw the bottom end out yet.

I have a spare engine and don't see how the circlip for the crank gears could get into the crank bearing. It may have crushed between the gears and threw the crank out of alignment.

As for fixing it, you should get a manual, a crank/gasket/seal kit, and the proper case sealant. And be sure to find every last piece of that clip.

I did a bottom end on an RM80 when I was 13, no manual either. It's not that difficult, yet 25 years later I skipped out on doing it to the KX I just built.:???:

When you actually split it the left side is up because the splitter pulls on the stator mount bolts.
