To everyone doin top ends themselves...

Does the motor need to be pulled out of the bike, or is it doable leaving it in to replace the piston?

Leave it in the frame. I used the online service manual, took my time, and everything turned out great.

can be done in , easier out

Just make sure that your bike is super clean.

leave it in. Plenty of room to work.

i leave it in....but just move little things in the way...

When u say the "Online Service" do u mean online service manual, or is there some sort of Kawasaki online service websight ur talking about? I just picked up a 06 and think im gonna go ahead and do the weisco fo peace of mind.

If you are looking for a service manual for the 06, check out the sticked "FAQ" thread. There is a link to a downloadable PDF service manual.

I like to take the motor out, plug off all openings and give the motor a good cleaning. This does a few things, insures no dirt in motor(including dirt off frame, etc.), easier to work on and keeps that new fresh look:thumbsup:
