doing my first rebuild just wondering what the piston to wall clearances should be? maybe 0.0025"? also does anyone know the torque specs for this bike? thanks

While 0.0025" sounds reasonable, I would verify with a service manual or the dealer before proceeding with an expensive rebuild. The manual will also provide all torque specs. Best to get the Kawi service manual if possible.

If using a third party piston, it is best to consult the piston manufacturer.

I just started my first re-build (ever!) on a '74 F11 250 also. I found a source for the service manual on ebay. It's the first thing I bought after the bike. The seller in in New Zealand and and the manual (a reproduction I am sure) is very well done. Plastic cover, thick pages and elect schematics are all in color. the seller is e-classicbike.com. It cost me US$56.93 to ship to North Idaho. Well worth it. I will try to remember to look up the specs for you tonight but I really recommend getting this guy's manual . Good luck on your build. I got lucky and the bike runs fairly well. No lights.....
