660 rhino engine pull out

Hi everyone
my rhino seezed up last friday and my dealer says this is not covered by the factory waranty.To make a long story short Yamaha will cover 50% of the needed parts but not the labour cost.Im going to pull the engine out myself and have the dealer replace the piston and connecting rod oil pump and so on.
Do to the fact that ʹm from Germany and my rhino is a extremly uncommon vehicle no yamaha dealer can or is willing to tell me how long this work proceedure is going to take.(there looking for the big buck!!).
Can anyone tell me how much work this is?
Oh buy the way my Rhino only has 160 hours on it regular oil change and when it broke it had the 1900 ccm oil in it and all liqiuds were at the proper levels

after the build use a synthetic oil that is rated for wet clutch application, like Amsoil, I would alomst bet the small end of the conn rod siezed into the piston, due to Galling on the piston pin.

when I pulled off the head and cylinder I noticed exactly that.There was a bit of a groove in the piston pin.I also noticed a flat spot on one side of the piston wall as if the piston had tilted,I guess that killed my connecting rod.
