How to re-sleeve a cylinder


jmeperu

This was done on a 400cc single but it works on twins and 4 cyl's as well. Clean your cylinder and get as much oil out as possible and freeze your new sleeve or sleeves.

Use an oven to heat to 450 deg F

push cylinder down and most of the time the sleeve or sleeves will pop up

use an oven mitt or welding glove to pull the sleeves out. if they dont pull out then gently tap them out with a large tipped punch.

remove new sleeve from freezer and drop it in.

you will still need to have a machinist face the top of the cyl and bore it to your piston, but you saved yourself a few bucks.

      Question, new here, always reading never needed to post as most things are posted previously. I bought a 18 YZ450F and took it around the block ( motor not broke in) and accidentally didn’t hit the shifter hard enough and then hit the rev limiter in second gear. Am I fuqt?? Never broke a motor in before.

      I want to rebuild the top end, 
      - new valves
      - new head gasket
      - new rings
      Can I do it without removing the motor? how much work does it take & do I need any special measuring tools?
