The service manual is a great investment. I did my first topend in my 05 250 and found it to be quite helpful(as well as the internet). I downloaded mine off the net for 5 bucks and just printed it and put it in a binder. Good luck.

Mechanical skills goes a long ways. There are many videos on the net about how to do a top end on a two stroke and the work is not hard. Take your time and learn how a part functions as you take it apart. I think the hardest part is keeping the ring gap between the pin and not bending a ring when you slide the cylinder down. Yep, thats the hardest part about it. Once you do it for the first time you will see that its not that big of a deal.

Yes, buy a service mannual, download it onto your computer. I think I paid $7 bucks for it...it has all the torque spec's, and you will want to have those for all the parts of your bike. I am a torque dork. :thumbsup:

After a couple top ends, you will be a pro. I can now do one in about 1 1/2 hours, taking my time.
