Old saying.... "No one is totally worthless, ... They can always be used as a bad example!"7milesout said:3. I'll be the forum FD lab rat. You guys could always use someone to laugh at, and say, "I told you so," in the case that I have to bust it open again, or just remove and swap out the whole thing.
Remove the rubber on the footrest it just pulls up. 1. 10mmPlastic pop bolt underneath just forward of the rear shock push in the centre and pull the body out. 2 Another one underneath in front of the centre stand this is a mushroom type pop out the centre and pull.
It's all to do with the angle getting the ratchet spanner and extension in and keeping the skin on your knuckles and easier to reinstall I like an easy life.I did forget to include taking the exhaust system off. I don't however see that removing the radiator makes taking off the exhaust any easier. But that may be because I have a table lift that gets the bike up where getting to stuff on the underside easier.
Ditto sorry curtain call and encoreWhen I pulled the swingarm and FD off mine I didn't have to pull the cover off the final drive or take out any snap ring. I never took the FD apart or even took the cover off it. I was doing an engine swap and I just took them off the old engine and bolted them to the new engine. A quick and simple job.
