Question about 2003 ATK 250
000 miles just around the corner and the nights drawing in it is time to take the plunge and do the top end on my stroke 250 this autumn/winter. I've never attempted anything like this so if anyone has any tips or pitfalls to avoid please let me know.See my posts about about my recent seizure because a PV failed. I am pretty mechanically stupid. I never thought I'd do motor work or remove the motor. I was always amazed people on this forum did it. But I was able to remove the motor and it was pretty easy. Haven't totally disassembled it so I can't say piston replacement or bottom end taking apart is easy. But there's not much to it. Especially a top end where it's 5 nuts for the head and 4 for the cylinder. Take pictures write down things (everything you do if you want to to make sure you reverse everything) and keep some order for the parts you take off. I have put every bolt and nut I took off to disassemble something right back on so I don't end up with a big pile of bolts and nuts. Get an impact driver, a manual one is fine, to do any screw removal for the PVs. Don't even attempt to use a screwdriver or you'll mess up the screws.,,,
