Suzuki LT250r rebuild top end?

Recommended Posts

hey guys new to the Atv world but have ridden for a few years. I just bought a suzuki 250r LT with the kick start. The only problem is, is that it wont start, and it feels like it has no compression.

Has anyone had experience putting a top end rebuild on one of these bike? Is it hard to do? And is ther any torque specs i should know?

I'm not sure about the torque specs but the 2 stroke top end is about the easiest thing to do.

Yes I have done it twice now and it is not hard to do. I have the specs but not with me. I can look when I get home and post them on here. Have you checked compression?

yep do a compression test and that will tell you a lot... make sure you have fire and fuel too.. top end rebuild is easy, it shouldnt take an hour or two... a manual will give you all the torque specs and anything else you will need to know...

Check out this article for an idea of what it will take: 2-Stroke Top End Assembly - D.R.I Tech Support Center

They made a 250 Quadsport but it was in 89-90 and I think yours is older than that. Can you get the vin #?

      I went out to ride my quad today. When I started it up it ran for a minute, then died. Since then it will turn over but won't start. I've check the spark plug and get great fire. I have had this quad for about 6 months, and very new to breaking it down. But need help. Thanks

      I recently picked up a king quad 700 that doesn't run in the hopes of getting it running by spring. It had been previously taken apart some and a few pieces are missing in the engine, but the frame is complete and in good condition. The motor will need a piston, rings, cylinder, cams, and a few misc parts that are missing. Also the cases will need to be split to remove the pieces of piston that are in the crankcase. The piston blew up at high rpm and did a number on the cylinder so I'm trying to find out if it would be worth rebuilding this motor it buying another engine to swap in. There may be more damage to this engine that I can see so I was wondering how bad the insides of it could be considering it destroyed the piston. I have found a motor for 1200 plus 200 shipping, the only problem is I don't have that much now and I would have to save up a while before being able to afford it. Any suggestions appreciated.
