Thought I would do this so I can look back and tweak my memory for next time... and who doesn't love pictures of engines?? This is in progress and the reason for the engine split is I'm replacing the oil spray nozzle, Starter/Generator chain, starter chain guide and possibly a few other things before I get to the top end and replace the pistons and barrels. Here is a list of steps I'm following or have done so far. It isn't complete but more of an overview. I wanted to utilise the frame as a workbench to loosen or remove some parts which suck to try and remove when the engine is out of the frame so this is why there is a fair bit of dissassembly before I get the motor out and also why I leave the rear brake and final drive connected. 1. Get zip-lock bags and pen ready and label all bolts or bits for re-assembly. 2. Get sturdy boxes for parts and bags 3. Empty tank and remove. 4. Remove exhaust system. 5. Drop oil and remove filter and drain. 6. Remove crash guards, fairing, lower fairing frame, oil distribution block and oil cooler. 7. Remove battery and battery box. 8. Disconnect charging and pickup coil connections to motor. 9. Disconnect clutch, choke and throttle cables. 10. Remove airbox breather and drainage tubes and push airbox as far back as possible and anchor then remove carbs. 11. Remove stator and rotor with special bolt.(use rear brake in first gear to anchor). 12. Remove clutch cover and remove clutch completely (have 30mm socket handy and use the rear brake in first gear to anchor). 13. Remove gear-lever and crankcase cover. Dissasemble and pack gear selector bits then loosen torx screws in middle gear bearing plate with impact driver. 14. disconnect final drive uni-joint (using rear brake to anchor). 15. remove rear brake foot pedal and spring. 16. remove all engine mounts. 17. straddle bike(cushion between chest and frame) and lift engine out on right side (brake pedal side to avoid side stand spring pillar) onto a box or crate at the same height as the lower frame tube. 18. remove engine (oil-pump) covers. 19. remove pick-up coil assembly and disconnect neutral and oil sensors. 20. ... more coming.
