Why even mess with the cam chain and the valves if they still look good and are within specs? Just before you go start replacing suff get the micrometer out and some shim type feeler gauges and start seeing what's worn out and what isn't. You might be surprised that all you need are maybe some rings and a quick hone. KLX300's where kind of overbuilt in the first place, compaired to the power they put out.
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.
