I performed the same repair to my CRF last fall. You could cut grass with how sharp the valves were, so much was worn out.
I did the valves and a new piston and rings while it was apart. Runs like a raped ape, just as before. I did two valve adjusts before pulling the head, then it was time.

If you have parts left over after you button it up, those are not needed. Just like KTM to over-engineer things.
Better it get fixed now than later for sure. Good luck with the reassembly.

So with all the bike work going on I guess I need to get started so I have something to ride I crashed my TE last June and it has not moved from the garage since then

On thing I want to add is a better luggage set up and I think I'd like to try a soft pannier system so I need to weld up some racks. Where in the Denver area can I get some decent prices on a stick of maybe 1in round something or another and 1in square tubing?

Any one have any suggestions?

On a TE I went with a Giant Loop setup--works great on both my TE and the KTM--I've got the original one

I made a giant loop clone that I used last year and I felt really cramped on the bike with it and did not feel like I could move back much when riding aggressive and fully loaded. On a true dirt-bike the GL is a great set up, but there is no reason I cant do racks on the TE with some subframe modification.

My goal is to get the majority of the bulk of the luggage bellow the seat and moved further back, so I can have full range of motion while riding (or close to it) and it seems a soft pannier set up will do that better then a GL.

Ben, I just picked up some wolfman e-12s for this ride (along with another bike) They are really nice, well thought out. Very secure and plenty of options for strapping stuff on them. Best of all no hardware reqd

Chris,
I actually have some of those already and really liked them. If I cant work something out in time I will probably use them again, but for overnight I'd like just a little more room.

These are kind of what Id like to get......

Have you guys used a set up similar to this? Any issues?

Geo will eventually succumb to the button, probably won't be orange but it's just a matter of time

Sy, perfect time for a 570 kit, XR650 torque, KTM weight and handling, I rode behind Gordon's 570 and had to replace my new camera lens, they will definatey roost ya. My 525 is in pieces at the moment, it's getting freaked out

Nope sticking with stock--the older I get the less I like to "modify" em.
I just ordered a flywheel puller so don't get one--you can use mine.
Check your lower shock heim joint.
Get a clutch slave master cover and knock down bar.
Find your 13mm wrenches

Ben - I plan to use the same set up. I just installed them yesterday to try them out and see how it all works.

Chris, did you get the Wolfman duffle bag to go with the E-12s?
