    Hope you didn't get hurt. I've always said ice cream has no place in the shop.

    Piston rings and head gaskets should still be available from your local Suzuki dealer or on-line. You can get part numbers from an on-line fiche like this one:

    I usually get my part numbers and then comparison shop at several on-line retailers. I happen to like Ron Ayers as they offer the lowest prices and decent service:

    http://old.ronayers.com/

    The T500/GT500 had a stock bore of 70mm and two overbore sizes 70.5mm and 71mm. You'll need to determine what bore size you have now and if it's still tight enough to seal properly with new rings.
