Default HOW LONG WILL MY 2.5 LAST

I've got 8 plus gallons through my motor and it's still running pretty good but getting harder to start every time. Is it time to change my Piston and Sleave? And how much do they cost???

It still has plenty of power but it's getting harder to start so I thought it might be wearing out a little
