Default Need Top End Rebuild Info

After drowning my Foreman a few times it started smoking so I pulled the head and cylinder to have a look. I believe I need to bore the cylinder up a size and replace the piston, gaskets and rings. I cannot seem to find a place online that sells oversize pistons and rings for this bike. Can anyone direct me to a good place so I can get the parts ordered? Also, I checked the rod for slack in the bearing and I didnt feel any pushing up and down on it against the crankshaft but it did have some side to side play. Does anyone know what is an acceptable amount before I reassemble the top end? This is my first top end rebuild on this bike so any comments or suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks

side to side is normal, up and down is what you need to worry about and this you do not want. you need to have the cylinder checked before you order anything, it could be scared or even out of round and may need to go 2 sizes up. the shop that does the overbore for you should be able to order the pistion kit of your choice which they will need before boring.

Now the bad news, you said the bike has been sunk numerous times, a new top end may not last long. If you want it to last the bottom end needs to be split open and everything cleaned out good along with the oil cooler. I hate to see you spend $300 in just parts then for it to crap out on you in a month or two, if your lucky you may get a year out of it but who knows.

the cylinder head cap nuts are 29 ft-lb, tighten in several steps in a criss-cross pattern. the 6mm bolts on the cylinder, head, and cover should be tourqued to 9 ft-lb.
