You need to get a manual. So are you talking about doing a top end rebuilt?

Yes, a repair manual is a must, it has information that you need when working on a specific machine, important stuff like torque specs and such. The key components in a routine rebuild of a two stroke are piston, rings, cylinder hone or bore, crank seals, reeds, and ofcourse, all necessary gaskets. All this can be done without splitting the lower engine case. You will want to check the crank, connecting rod, and all the bearings that go with them. If any of those need replaced, you will need to split the case halves. You will also probably want to check the centrifugal clutch and the other components of the drive system.

torque i have can someone tell me how to get rings in cylinder without the correct tool

Are you asking how to put the piston in the cylinder after installing the rings? Or how to get the rings onto the piston?

There should be a line up dowel in the groove on the piston, make sure the gaps in the rings sit on either side of that dowel. Then you should be able to use your hands to pinch the rings in tight as you slide the cylinder back on over the piston, it isn't the easiest thing to do, but it can be done. I have done it several times, and I actually, think it is easier that using a ring compressor. I have one and unless I am working a car engine, I don't use it.

      Safety Is A Concern For Kids ATVs
      The family is into racing ATVs and now the children want to get in on the action. How do you start with someone who is too young to drive a car, but yet sees other children their own age charging through the woods racing an ATV? A tough decision for parents, but with a lot of planning and instruction your kids ATV can become a reality.
      Safety should be your first concern before getting the kids ATVs for their own use. You should plan on doing your research to make sure that you get the best kids ATV available for their age group and size. The research should include surfing the web and also by reading Consumer Reports—both of these will provide you with a tremendous amount of information on kids ATVs.
      It is recommended that the youngest kid ATV riders should have an ATV that has an engine with no more than 4.3 cubic inches. There are not too many choices at this size for kids ATVs, but you want to ensure that your child is not riding a machine that it too large for them to handle.
      As a concerned parent, you should check into the ATV Safety Institute. This group offers safety courses all over the country. The experienced instructors will teach you and your kids about pre-ride inspections, warm up exercises, braking, turning, and shifting. They also teach you about clutch and throttle control and about the importance of body position and simple maintenance. In addition they cover riding techniques and how to tackle obstacles, hills and different kinds of trails. All of these issues are important safety issues for your kids ATV riding.
      So, what are the features will your kid's ATV have? One company has an experienced team of ATV enthusiasts that work with you on your kids ATV to hand select the perfect one. Each ATV they have is designed with safety in mind and they offer a 4-point safety system which includes a throttle limiter, an emergency kill switch, a safety kill tether and a remote kill key. The kid ATVs are safe and they come with a 4 stroke engine, headlights, an electric start and disk brakes. This company that focuses on safety with kid ATVs is Motorxtremes. They want to make sure that every kids ATV is safe and that the rider follows all safety precautions.
      You should make sure that your kids ATV comes with all of the necessary additional safety equipment to make their ride as safe as possible. Every kid ATV rider should have a helmet with a full-face cover, goggles to keep dirt out of their eyes, gloves with finger and knuckle guards, a shirt with long sleeves and safety pads for their chest, shoulders, elbows and knees.
      Make sure you and your children know the rules of riding ATVs. While you can not ensure that your kids ATV rides will be completely accident free, you can help them by providing the best additional safety equipment available.
