Speaking of doing things outside, I finally put my first bike back together. There were a few things I've always wanted to address on this bike and I finally had the time to throw it all together. Building this thing from the engine up took me less than an hour and I did it all alone. I'm not sure if thats a good thing or I've just taken this thing apart too many times. Notable work on this bike would be XS650 front end lowered and brembo'd, kick only SL350 crankcase with close-ratio gears, TM28 flatslide carbs, and electric system simplified with electronic ignition, high output stator, 4-cell antigravity, and LED lights. I've definitely outgrown this bike but it's still fun to rip around on a 300lb bike.

That bike is bad! looks nice and they say its funner to ride a slow car fast.

My bike is a total loss system like aesop stated.

Oil is going to the combustion chamber and i need to replace the rings on the piston.

How bad of a job is it? I have a decent sized porch i can dismantle my bike but I have never delt with motors.
Not terribly hard but requires a few specialty tools. As previously stated, torque wrench is a must when working on a motor and most other parts on a motorcycle. Compression tester or rather a leak-down tester to determine what exactly is out of tolerance to allow oil into the combustion chamber. Feeler gauges to check piston ring gap and to redo the valve clearances once you are finished. In general, engine work is not something that should be done outside especially if it is going to take longer than one day. A nick in a gasket surface or a speck of dirt in the crankcase is all it takes to ruin an engine. Also be prepared to replace gaskets, they usually fall apart when you take a motor apart. NO SANDING of any engine parts whatsoever. If something does need to be cleaned, make sure you use a material that is softer than what you are sanding such as the green scotchbrite pads. Most importantly be patient, it doesnt pay off to rush something and have to do it again later.
