Engine Removal/Frame Dissasembly
I've got a quick question for those who have removed their motors for case machining, frame alterations, etc.
I'm leaving out MANY steps in between, but the factory service manual recommends removing the rear swing arm, dropping the lower frame subsection from the bike (with the motor still attached to the top fore and aft mounts), and THEN lowering the motor from the bike.
My instinct says it would be easier to disconnect the top motor mounts and drop the lower frame subsection with the motor still attached, without removing the rear swing arm so the bike can still sit on two wheels. Then I could place the motor on a pallet/cradle and dismount the lower frame subsection.
How did you do it? Clearance issues with the swinging arm if I did it my way?
