Hey guys where would you get your engine refreshed? Any suzuki dealership or a raceshop? Asking bc i want to get mine done, and get ready to race it.

What price range am i looking at for refreshing? A good worthy one!

what do you mean by "refreshing"? You want to have the cylinders honed/pistons re-ringed? or just replace some seals?

Having something like that done wouldn't be a bad idea for track use. I know for a fact that I've lost HP over the past 6 years of my bike's life according to the Dyno.

Just called an other shop. Great guy. Gave me good and simple advice. Run it on the dyno first! Check HP and then look into it.

Just throw some blue bottle Rotella T in the crank case and run it. Should be all you need.

;D

Let us know exactly what they do for a "refresh" I am very interested to hear what that entails.

He told me the gasket, rings and stuff like that, the labor it self is 600, + parts. I rather buy a new engine!

I'm pretty sure they just do a tune up, compression check, valve check and carb sync or they'll ask him what an "engine refresh" entails.

Sweet LORD. That is pricey. A new engine would definitely be the way to go.
