By far the best Suzuki Dealer I have found is Crooks Suzuki in Barrow In Furness. On the basis that what you want is a genuine part they should be able to help. I can't remember any of their contact details though. I'm not sure what to recommend for bore chroming. Try Stan Stevens, they are a premier 2 stroke specialist.

1995 ZX6R Ninja- has low compression in #2 and # 3, runs good. Just idles rough. Looking at purchasing this bike w/ these problems. Is this a expensive fix and how hard of a fix?

The fix is going to cost more than the bike is worth. The shop labor will be at least $950. Parts cost is additional and 2 gaskets are $20 each, pistons are $40, rings are $30 per set, cylinder inserts are $72 each. That puts the parts cost around $625. That's around $1558 total. The repair is not for the home mechanic.

I have a 2006 Suzuki RM-Z 250. I just recieved it from my brother and its not running. I went to check the spark and when i kicked it over water shot out of the spark plug hole. I drained the oil and the...

Definitely the head gasket mate water cant really get above piston any other way - the piston would be sucking water into it on the down stroke then on the up stroke water would be passing pass the piston rings into sump oil
the only test you can do with out the bike started is a compressed air leak down test I happy to elaborate on this test if you need but if you do all your own rebuilds then I sure you know all about it..
when you take head off to replace gasket I would highly recommend you get the face of the head machined as pretty much any head that age in my experience at least would have some warpage to the face which will become harder and harder to get good head gasket seal even with new gaskets also if budget allows this would be great time to consider new piston and rings kit even new cylinder as its all apart any how if you can afford it would be very worth while
when you get running again I would also change that oil completely and oil filter every ride for at least 2 or 3 times to make sure all that water is all gone - or it will bite you later with far worse problems than head gasket issues

I have a 2002 YZ250F that probably needs a new top end? What is an approximate cost on repairs?

Hi mate if you can rebuild your self then parts would be about $200 for piston kit and about $80 for the gasket kit and to be extra nice to the bike then about $10 new oil and same again for new oil filter so parts only well under $400 with some change
you may want to consider new cam chain whilst you have it all apart unless it has been changed as over 8 years old would mean it is well an truely used to its potential if you include the cam chain then you won't get any change from $400 but this figure would be pretty close give or take $50
As for paying someone to rebuild it for you well sorry to say you well on the way to $900 in the shop for labour and parts but if you need this option shop around to find best value
My Moto X parts online store can help you with best value for the parts delivered to your door this could save you few dollars if you rebuild yourself or supply your own parts to the mechanic to rebuild?

My son 06 250 sxf motor seized up won't start

If the bike has been seized up it's important to check out the piston and cylinder head. It's a good learning experience and not that hard a project. Remove the seat, tank, pipe and maybe the carburetor and you should be able to get at the head bolts. Pull the head and inspect the top of the piston and ring area. Rings usually get stuck to the piston so there is not any compression. Pull the jug and more than likely there will be alloy from the piston transfered to the cylinder heard.
Take it to a bike shop or automotive machine shop that can hone it to first over. Purchase new 1st over-sized piston and matching rings. Re-assembly and replace all gaskets.
Thanks for contacting FixYa,

I have a 1986 yamaha 540 srv snomombile and when i throtle it up it bogs out and pops like a backfire do you have a suggestion on what is causing this and how to correct it?

You should purchase a gasket and seal set, pull your motor out of the sled, disassemble the motor, and replace all the gaskets and seals. You can purchase a piston kit on line that should come with pistons , rings , gaskets , and seals.The main problem you are having is an air leak on one or both of the crank end seals. Usually the clutch side seal leaks first. If you continue to drive you will probably score one or both of the cylinders.When you have the motor apart clean your carburetors and replace your spark plug caps. NGK has new plug caps for about $5 each. If your cylinders look good i would consider doing a light hone job and ring replacement. Again if you just buy new aftermarket seals pistons and gaskets you should be able to do a complete rebuild for about $150. Then your engine will be good for another 25 years. If you are limited on funds Just replace the crank seals , clean the carburetors, and put on new NGK plug caps (about $30).

It is a 98 kx60 it is really hard to start and it dosent seem to have any power up high or down this because it needs a new top end?

Yes. You need a new top end. Being very hard to start, and having no power, sounds like you have no compression left. You need a new Piston Kit. Wiseco make one for your model.
This is a very high reving little bike, the piston and rings in them dont last very long.

My 2004 honda cbr 1000rr has a loud rattle and i was told i would need new valves. is this an expensive job?

Needing new valves is highly unlikely. Your bike is only 5 years old.
Before doing anything else, run through a tank of premium gas. If the rattle goes away then a bit of pre-ignition was present. If the rattle is still there, take the bike to a dealer and ask them to reset the cam chain tensioner and set the valve clearances also. This may cost $150 or so. Chances are that if the knocking is still present, you are hearing piston slap. This would require new pistons, rings and probably fresh cylinder bores. Have the shop re-seat the valves while the top end is torn down. Ask the dealer as to cost before handing over the bike.
