2 cycle making a comeback

I rode 250cc two-strokes since the seventies. Laid off for a number of years then bought a Honda CRF450x for riding the desert a year ago. It is a nice bike but it is big and heavy. Fourty pounds heavier than my last 250 2-stroke enduro. You definitely have to muscle it around.
It is time to do the top end on it and the quotes I'm getting are outrageous. I told my riding buddy who is in the same position with his KTM; it's time we learn how to do it ourselves. I never hesitated putting pistons and rings in my 2-strokes but this seems a little daunting.

E.C. said it best on his website when he said stated, "the AMA has done more to Destroy Amateur Motorcycle Racing in America with their support of four-stroke class structure". I'm paraphrasing and don't remember his exact words but the intent is the same.
