exactly, and who know's what else is bad
splitting cases is the ONLY way to get inside clean and not ruin a NEW top end you just did!
so, its worth it to take the added time and do it right, done right you will KNOW you have a long lasting motor
half A$$ things and you could be down again real soon
HOWEVER if your a deep mud water riding guy, then, I gather your only goal is to get it to GO< and will be doing motor work again soon any how, so!
to many, NOT splitting cases and just flushing is all you's like to do, to save on down time, as sooner or later you'
ll have water in motor again any how LOL
and top ends are common PM"S
but as they say done once RIGHT< really isn;t any more time than fixing the top end 2-3 times!
but depends on use of atv I guess! as to what is better for you
or if your only fixing to sell to some sucker too I guess>?
