How do i remove cylinder head and only the head


Not recommended by manufacturer. Release torque bolts. Remove excess gasket material without scratching the top head and head cover, or loose material from entering top end of engine. Also great opportunity to check rocker arms and springs for wear. Clean area with acetone. Micron gauge the head plate, any wear, head warped. Warped heads can be replaced or planed, consult dealer or machine shop. Replace gasket evenly. Torque bolts to maximum torque specifications by dealer or manufacturer. Allow head gasket to sit for 24-48 hrs. Check torque. Allow engine to idle for 30 min. Let sit. Resume proper driving habits.

Just rebuilt the top end on my 1999 kx 250 and wondering what the torque specs are for the head and cylinder


Cylinder bolts @ 25 ft/lbs (34Nm)
Cylinder head nuts @ 18ft/lbs (25Nm)
Check these nuts again after first warm up and again after first two rides to let gaskets bed in and seal. Cheers.

How do i replace the head gasket on my Suzuki LS650


To replace the head gasket disconnect the battery, remove the tank, remove the rocker cover. Manually turn the crank shaft until the engine is on top dead center compression stroke and the lines on the cam shaft gears are even with the top of the cylinder head. At that point evenly loosen the bolts that hold the cam shaft. Do one cam shaft at a time. Before you remove the second cam shaft tie a piece of wire to the cam chain then let the chain fall into the hole after removing the second cam. Loosen the carburator mounts and slide the carburators back so they are free of the engine. Now you can evenly loosen the head bolts and then remove the head. Check the head and cylinder for signs of warping or why the gasket needs to be changed. When you replace the head gasket make sure the gasket fits over the guide pins. Reassembly is essentially reverse of the disassembly. After you get the head torqued to specs, you will be glad you fought that wire attached to the cam chain when you start to install the cams. Make sure each cam goes back from where you took it from and the lines line up like they were before you took them out. Don't forget to install a new gasket on the rocker box.
