Make sure it's a "light tap" fit, if at all worn they can shear off with dire results.

So I brought in my engine to the machine shop so they could inspect the usual wear spots. Since I doubt I'll ever have it this far down again imma replace the bearings and thrust washers in there.  When looking at part diagrams I come across different sizes for the bearings and washers, how do I know which corresponds to my bike?

There also seems to be a lot of corrosion on one of my heads where the head gasket goes. Is there a specific or safe amount which I can resurface these heads / grind down? Without increasing compression too much?

As well I was looking at how to put my rocker arms back on and since I didn't do the disassembly I was wondering which way the notch faces and which way the rocker arm shaft faces ?

 Got the bike out of my basement and slapped the rear wheel and swing arm

Got a bunch a parts in a bucket from when I bought the bike apart can anyone help me pin point where some of these go?


Also was wondering if ther is a special way to pop on the kickstand ?

And lastly was wondering if this was the proper routing or should it go the one passage above ?

Sorry I have been off the boards for a while. I can post a few pictures of mine if it helps. Hope things are coming along. I had been keeping mine kinda stock then just went wild and now I'm going to cafe it out in the next couple weeks.
