I purchased an '03 yz450F a year ago and road it a handful of times... I just recently pulled my engine due to over heating... My question is, before i do a complete rebuild of it, how do I check to see if my cylinder is not warped (if that is even a common problem for overheating). If it turns out fine, what would be a good recommendation for cams, valves, piston.....
