Exclamation Foreman Top End Rebuild

I have an 05 Honda Foreman my dad bought me new to basically do what any 13 year old would do. Tear it up. Doesn't make sense, I know. Now, I've been trying to fix it up because I value a great running machine. I started out small with new ball bearings, front A-Arm bushings, fresh oil change and what not. Now I'm ready to fix the worn out top end. I know a lot of hondas that tick but mine straight rattles. It's been drowned out several times and has a lot of miles on it. I want to rebuild the top end but could use a solid quote on the cost of materials. Also, it may need to be bored out, either way I want to. Also, I like to go to most mud rides. I'm not a bogger myself but on occasion I have no choice, so I planned on getting a jet kit and performance exhaust for sound and added power. Any idea on the overall cost for all the materials needed, labor ( I've rebuilt single cylinder engines before but can't trust myself ) to do all the things I want done?

Depends where you are but my local dealership charges $80 an hr for labor and you could easily have 4 to 6 hours into a top end rebuild depending what all they do. You should try it yourself first. If you mess up then let them take it from there.

I would bet it's a loose timing chain too. I imagine you could get one around $30.

I'll take a look at the chain. Also, ever so often the fourwheeler blows out a lean gas smelling white smoke. Not a little but a nice cloud when I rev it up.
