I've not tried it but someone once told me he'd managed it with a complete engine, not sure how though. Get some photos up of your attempt ! :mrgreen:

there was a guy that did get the engine out complete, by turning it upside down, not recommended. just buy a new gasket set, or remove both barrels with the head intact, that's what I did until I found the gasket sets on evilbay including the elusive head gasket. see my thread "finally started" or on page 2 of the kr250 forum, full gasket sets.

Hi

I couldn't pull the engine out of the frame in one piece, I removed the head and both barrels attached to it. When fitting them back this way you need some body to lower this assembly gently while guiding piston and rings into the barrels to avoid getting rings broken.

Good luck!

well the engine is a runner and I don't want to upset the Karma by pulling it apart as it usually ends up in tears My wallet starts crying :roll:
