So a phsyco EX g/f got ahold of my keys during a fight and being jealous of the true love of my life (2018 mt10 with 4000 miles) with full graves pipe comfort seat and bought the graves tuner, and the crazy bitch poured a crapload of salt in the tank unbeknownst to me. Left and made it 4 miles before it died! Took it to dealer next day thinking a warranty fuel pump, after tearing entire motor apart finding crap in the fuel, determination was needs fuel pump and all new piston rings, for 3700!!!! Didn't have the cash so bike is in my living room in a million pieces! My question is this.... Dealers work order said nothing about removing oil pan to pull rod caps to get pistons back into the sleeve section of the head, is there ANY WAY to get the pistons back into the sleeve portion of the head without pulling the rode of the crank?¿? Obviously need someone who has torn one completely apart which I know is rare! HELP PLEASE

here the Workshop manual , drive.google.com/open?id=0BwKobrluzNwYV2ZtYThTUndqWTA took apart few engines , but never tryed to operate like you describe. I will just refit the pistons with the new rings on the cylinder block using 4 ring clamps . luckily in this engines the cylinder block it´s removable and not part of the crankcase
Maybe ask in a R1 forum? I mean the engines are similar enough that you might get away with that.
yeah I've researched that avenue as well and unfortunately or actually thankfully for most fz Mt owners there just aren't really any or enough engine failures out there since 2016 to really have many people with full teardown knowledge yet!
As i wrote due my job and tuning illness a took apart few engines of R1 and Mt10 still did not get why you cannot remove the cylinder block and make the whole job easy...
the cylinder sleeve was removed by the shop,who didn't even bother to clean the engine first, so all four piston's are still connected to the crank and flopping around in the case and I'm trying to figure out if I can get the cylinder sleeve back on like that or if I need to pull the piston's of the crank too. The shops estimate didn't give any clue either way and I asked them and they wouldn't even let me talk to the tech
