Just wondering what exactly is involved with a 'Top-End' refresh on a
I see a lot of advertisements for used machines where the owner has
specified the engine in the sled has just undergone a 'Top-End' refresh
and is fully 'prepped' for the riding season.
As far as I understand it, a 'Top-End' refresh is simply pulling the head(s)
and decarbonizing the piston tops and combustion chambers, installing
a new set of piston rings, checking cylinder walls for excessive wear
pattern(s), and finally, a new set of plugs after putting it all back together.
Please clarify.... if I've missed anything.... it sounds like there's a lot more to
it than what I've listed here.
I'm thinking of doing this on my 02 570 Fan with 6000 miles on the 'ticker'.
Thanks in advance.
