I don't know about what most people here do, but I've only done it once and I just fiddled and slipped them on.

I believe that he is asking about doing a top end refresh, not just how to get the rings on over the piston.

Like Indy said, get a manual. There are some great aftermarket manuals available and you shouldn't have trouble finding one for your bike.

Like said before get a manual, also a lot of colleges even some bike shops hold weekend repair/maintenance courses which run once every week 5-8hour class's for 3-6months.
