Not sure what state of "togetherness" your motor is in but, there is an inspection bolt hole on the front side of the magneto cover. Take this bolt out together with the sparkplug and remove cylinder head cover. Turn engine till a timing mark appears in the centre of the inspection hole. The piston/crank will be at TDC (top dead centre) if magneto rotor is keyed on correctly. Do not set anything on engine other than at TDC. Magneto is tightened on to crankchaft end with a locating key, this covers your spark timing.
Valve timing is achieved via the cams, place camshafts into cups at TDC (all valves will be shut) and timing marks on camshaft sprockets will line up with line on cam cup journals in the head. Camchain is fed on from opposite side as chain tensioner to ensure timing remains when tensioned. Let me know if you are "all parts on the bench" or contemplating a stripdown, I can then clarify all necessary steps.

You could purchase a service manual for the 250. Then you will need tools, some very special. You will need a place to work and probably a mechanic friend to look over your shoulder from time to time. You should speak with the parts guy or gal at the Kawasaki shop considering the parts you will need for this 25 year old motorcycle. I'm sorry, you can not get step by step instructions on how to reassemble an engine here

Since you are this far along, you may well want to consider the actual condition of the engine. Bore clean and smooth? Piston? Bearings, etc. You may also want to consider the general condition of the bike. Consider, when you are all done, you will have a very expensive 25 year old motorcycle. This is not impossible but it will be an involved expensive project.

I want to know if there is a way to get the magneto out with out using a proper magneto puller

There is a way, but be carefull when pulling out that magneto's magnetic cover, you might scratch and break the stator winding, that happens to me without using the puller screw, cost me $50.!
Just go to and type model of your bike and what your going to do. lots of video will be shown, but most of Suzuki's have the same style!
Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for asking FixYa!

Catalytic Converters

Motorbikes built since the 1990's more often have catalytic converters than those prior to this time. In countries throughout the world there have been studies regarding the impact of 2-stroke and 4-stroke motorbike exhaust contaminants into the air. The conclusion has pretty much been a change in policy requiring the inclusion of catalytic converters be an added feature on these motorbikes. From all I read it appears most manufacturers have included catalytic converters on 2-stroke and 4 stroked motorbikes for quite sometime. The majority of these motorbikes sold today, will have a catalytic converter. In the event you find one without a converter, if would probably not be a good idea to purchase it. An older 2-stroke or 4-stroke motorbike, probably could have a catalytic converter added, although it might be expensive to do this.,,,
