Q:What's included in a standard engine rebuild?

A: Your engine will be completely disassembled and all parts will be cleaned and inspected. The standard engine rebuild price will include any labor needed to re-assemble your engine, including replacement of bearings, crankshaft, piston, and proper torque of all fasteners. 4 stroke labor will include re-setting your valve clearances. Keep in mind, you will be quoted additional labor fees to rebuild your original crankshaft, bore or re-plate your cylinder, recondition your cylinder head (4-Stroke), or any machining that may be required.

Q: What kind of warranty do I get with my rebuilt engine?

A: Due to the nature of motocross, high performance engines and the fact that part manufactures do not warranty their parts, engine rebuilds do not include any warranty of any type expressed or implied. This is precisely why we have set forth procedures to ensure that no small part of the engine rebuild or performance service is overlooked. We at LaBaron's Power Sports have a reputation for outstanding performance in our engine rebuilds, and will continue to offer quality work by adhering to our guidelines.

Q: What is the turnaround time for my service?

A: Turn around time varies depending on the job, and time of year. Most engine rebuilding jobs will be completed in an average of 4-6 weeks, however some special operations may take longer due to parts availability.

Q: Once I have my engine rebuilt, can I bolt it in and go?

A: Not so fast... Many times, engine failures are due to improper jetting. Upon completion of the job, we can provide you with jetting RECOMMENDATIONS. Final jetting is ALWAYS the responsibility of the customer, unless the machine is brought in for jetting here at our location. We will not be held responsible for a failed engine due to improper jetting, or other factors that are out of our control. There are also other determining factors in the life of the engine, most of which we cannot account for when doing a simple engine rebuild. You will need to make sure your intake system is free of leaks (intake boot, air-box, and filter assembly) and that your carburetor is clean. You will also be responsible to determine that your cooling system is functioning properly, and that you maintain the correct oil level in the engine, as all engines are shipped dry.
