Motorcycle Engine Repair
Whether you want to rebuild an old motorcycle engine, install an upgrade for improved performance, or repair worn or broken parts, understanding the basic rules of the engine rebuilding process is critical. Regardless of the engine size or type, you want to be sure you’re doing everything right. But the question is: how hard is it to rebuild a motorcycle engine?
The answer, of course, depends on a variety of criteria, such as the degree of engine wear or damage you’re facing, modifications and tuning needed to create your ideal motorbike engine, your level of expertise, and, last but not least, what you want to accomplish with an engine rebuild.
It’s all about preparation.
A successful engine rebuild project requires preparation. Having a workshop, high-quality working equipment, and cleaning your bike, particularly the external engine components, are all part of the equation. After that, you will need a complete repair manual to walk you through every step of the procedure, including rebuilding the motorcycle engine from scratch.
How much will it cost for the rebuild?

- Wrap the frame rails where the engine is most likely to come into touch with.
- To make the engine disassembly easier, remove the external engine casings.
- Use the correct equipment to remove the clutch, crankshaft drive gear, stator, alternator, gear change lever, ignition plate, and all associated engine components.
- Remove the oil and electrical connections from your machine.
- Remove the engine mounting bolts and plates one by one.
Each time you rebuild a motorcycle engine you want to check the valves. The tool on the left is called a spanner tool. This is a common tool used to check the valve spacing as it sits flush on the head of the engine block. Its important to note that the clearences are set to the factory standards. If the valve clearance is set to zero, the valve may theoretically be made to close fully when the engine is warm, however as parts expand with warmth, there is no room for them; therefore, the valve would not completely close. That’s why valve clearances must be verified when the engine is cold.
