Anyone work with small motors and willing to help me out? Your time will be compensated!
I am located in Rochester but my parents live in Waterford, can transport the bike to either location.
I'd offer, but I'm extremely busy. Do yourself a favor, and search any type of small engine (two stroke included) bottom end rebuild on google. You'll come across some pictures and that's basically all you need to know.
Crank bearings are not hard to replace as long as you have the proper tools, and any crank work you'll still have to have a shop do (likely - rod bearings, balancing, etc.).
I second the above post that you should get the manual. It's probably going to be 40 bucks, but it'll be worth it.
