Here we go I already had my bike part way apart before I grabbed the camera so any questions let me know or corrections jump right in. Get a service manual!!! read through the procedure before you start. I already had the Tank removed for other reasons but I highly recommend removing it for more room to work. The Horns and coils and Carbs are off as well for preseason cleaning and touchup. Wow looking at these pics my bike is filthy I promise I will clean it up guys after partial assembly as to not drop things into the motor. I couldn't use all the pics I took as I have hit the limit and had to narow them down. I can't stress enough to read through the manaul for the procedure it will save you some aggrevation(sp?). Tools You will need a thin set of feeler guages either the ones that taper down or a 3/8" wide set. I looked everywhere and could not find either so I borrowed the wife's "good" scissors and cut the ones down I needed SSshhhh she doesn't know. There is NO WAY AROUND THIS FACT there just isn't enough room on the intake side to get a regulare feeler in there. Ball end allen wrenches help but not necessary. A #3 phillips, 10,12 and 19mm wrenches and 10mm socket,ext, and ratchet as well. Then the normal stuff for removing the carbs. if you see the need it def made it easier to get at the Tensioner bolt. Put the bike up on the center stand on level ground most will know this but hey got to throw it out there. This job isn't bad at all just time consuming my bike has 244??miles on it and the valves were all tight I could not get a .004" feeler under any of the Intake lobes to check the clearance. So if you have one of these bikes with oh lets say 15K plus on it please check them before this riding season.
