Price for a new piston/Ring job

What is a decent Price for a new piston/Ring job on a 04 YZ450?

I fig ring and piston kit is $150...So what should i expect to pay for labor on this?

It costs about 3 hours of your life.

Seriously, if you have a manual, you may be better off just doing it yourself, especially if you know someone that can help you do it. The manual guides you through it very well, and there are many good posts on TT that help too.

I just paid $220 for piston, rings, all new valves, and cam chain install. I wanted to do the work myself, but I don't have the eye for what all was wrong inside. I think I got a pretty sweet deal for a Yamaha tech.

I'm scared to do it

I will be worring for a month if I did it right.

I'm a Contractor and do alot of trades but just scared to try that...

Have you ever done a two stroke top end? If you have then you really shouldn't worry because it is pretty much the same. If you haven't done a two stroke top end before, then you may want to have someone who has help you the first time. It really isn't that hard to do if you take your time and follow the manual.

Done alot of smokers in my day

Have not done it in 6 years thou
