Started the teardown. Left exhaust came off fine.


The right side started to turn with the first whack, gave it a second and decided to cut off the nut.

I figure I will buy a new nut, clean the threads with the thread file and decide if they are too far gone or not.

I pulled the old pan gasket because it was pushing out everywhere. The old one was a soft rubber the new one is more of a hard fibrous material.

At least the pan was pretty clean when I pulled it down.


Everything on the front pulled pretty easy. The rotor rotor popped off with the first good whack.

I was ready to heat the timing cover and pull it when I realized the shop did not give me the new cam seal, so I bolted the pan back on and stopped there to keep the bike from sitting with it open for a week or two while I try to locate the cam seal.
