is it electronic ignition? - if so, the ignition heat sink unit may be gone...should be s omehwere on the underside of the tank shroud. do you have a manual for it?

yes, but it would be several thousand dollars with all of the parts and labor. these require feedback from sensors, a high pressure fuel pump, a different wiring harness, and plenty of other parts that are very expensive.

First check the valve clearances. Check/adjust these when the engine is cold - .004' inlet and .006' for exhaust, don't be too fussy any clearance is better than no clearance! Next you should check compression for both cylinders, they should be within 10% of each other. Assuming you have the original points set-up these too can 'adjust' out of tolerance when they get warm. Keep in mind the bike is 41 years old and may need more frequent tlc, best o luck.

what alters the engine capacity is stroke length or piston diameter ( not conrod length)
what you will be checking is bearing size and conrod pin size to check for changes
