kx65 top end rebuild

I have been giving this alot of thought. After this next tmgp race I wanna rebuild thr top end of the bike since I really dont know its history. It supposively has a big bore 72cc kit as it sits. I have never been inside of a motor. Ive seen a bunch of tutorials and it seems straight forward. For those of you that have dealt with the kx65's are there any tips that you would like to share. The only that has me confused is that I have no clue how to measure the bore to figure what piston and cylinder to purchase. I live in Spring if any you shade tree mechanics want to come teach me!! Ill pay in pizza and beer....lol

so, you trying to give yourself and excuse for getting lapped before you even get to the race? I see how this is going to work.
Don't let you wife sit by mine in the pits, she will tell her all the excuses before you get to use them.

I just rebuilt the top end on my 4 stroke... took a bit of time being my first time but not that bad at all. Currently got the top end off on my 2t and getting ready to split the case for the first time to rebuild the crank.

get a repair manual, and off you go. easy.

you may get lucky, depending on the piston it may be marked on the crown, or under the dome.

2 stroke top end is easy if you have mechanical know how and a manual. If you need to re-coat the cylinder that can be a lil spensive and take time to get back but it may not need that. No pesky valve train to worry about on a 2 stroke.
