Hey guys:

I just came in from a 10 mile break-in ride on the lake. All seems well and I will continue breaking in this week on the northern Michigan trails.

I installed new pistons, rings, wrist pins and new upper gaskets, plus hone job ($180).

The on-line service manual that FrozenTows posted worked great.

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR ADVICE!!![/b]
wow that is pretty cheap for a top end rebuild

$180 for a top end is dirt cheap! I was really impressed that you had that many miles on the original top end!!

I know everyone has their way of doing things, but in the manuals it says to mix 100:1 on carb models only during break in. No pre-mix for efi models. I'm assuming you don't pre-mix with efi because it would clog the injectors? If anyone knows the reasons for this I would like to know, just for the general knowledge. I may be rebuilding my 600 efi this summer, but I am really having a hard time justifying doing when she's still running strong with 6400 miles.

Where's the snow?

what did you use for pistons? Did you buy them online? If I could rebuild my bottom end for under a couple hundred it may be worth doing just for piece of mind.

I tried the link for the manual and it was no longer available. I have a ZR600 Blair Morgan Edition that i am getting ready to put rings in I check compression and its very low.

Does anyone know where I can get a service manual online for little to 0 dollars

Any help would be appreciated. I really don't want to send this thing to the local dealer as shop rates are 65.00/hr plus parts

How many miles on your machine? If you are going to tear it down that far, I would put a new set of pistons in for sure. Not sure where to get an online manual. I could get you torque specs if you need.
