Help With Top End Rebuild

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'v had my 08 RMZ250 now for a year now and as i don't know what "deep" maintenance has or hasn't been done on the bike, i'm going to rebuild the top end.

I'm happy changing piston, timing chain etc, but not 100% about removing valves.

I would like to put new valve seals in whilst its open.

I know just removing the valves are easy using a £30 tool, but will i need to re-seat and replace guides on them even if the valves are still good?

If so can i check if the valves are still good without removing them?

If It must be done (and out of interest) , how much will a shop charge for cleaning up the head, fitting guides, valves and re-seating valves?

Any help appreciated.

if you change valve you have to do the seats...like chain and sproket, or cam chain and cam sproket (well at least you have to set the clearence after few hours).

I did on a rmz 450 after 200h of good maintanence, but 250 and 450 are different on use and rpm use.

I saw valve seats in "berillio".....very interesting, but high price.
