If you have little to no mechanical experience, I would advise against it. Unless you have a real mechanic onsite to advise, you can end up with a real mess and a bunch of parts that won't run anymore. If you do decide to try it yourself, you MUST keep everything very clean (free of dirt and grit). You should use some sort of engine rebuild pre-lube on all surfaces that move against other surfaces. The first time you do this, you should lay your parts out in order as you take them apart, in such a way that it will help you remember when you put it back together. Torque the bolts as specified, don't just guess on how tight it is. This is by no means all the important things to remember, just a few very important items that a novice might overlook. Good luck and keep us posted.

check the site sponsors. You will find everything you need from someone.
From what I hear, they treat everyone from the web site good, just tell them you saw the sponsorship on buggies.
