thx for the feedback Jake, while ive ordered the parts to do the job as written in the manual, I was wondering why the throttle bodies and oil tank would have to come off did you remove those or leave them in place, was it easier to take the mufflers off rather than the headers?

I left the throttle bodies and oil tank in place. It is straight forward to remove the mufflers, it saves some work leaving the headers in place.

thx Jake, in looking at the job I don't see why I would need to take the throttlebodies and oil tank off,(according to the manual that says to remove them) It looks like I can just disconnect the cables on the TB's and leave them in place. Did you have to remove them?

I just disconnected the cables and any electrical wires to the motor.

Well just got the shaft out and it is the bearing on the torsion dampener shaft. I had to take the frame off the engine as I couldnít get the shaft out by just lowering the back end as jake did, the cover plate has a retainer on the rear bearing that doesnít allow the cover to come off the bearing so I didnít have the room to pull the shaft out without removing the engine.
