OK, ordinarily I'd feel dumb about this post, but I've owned my X-Co for about 5 days, so I'm a n00b.

What's involved in replacing the stock unit--how much of a PITA in terms of time and sweat? Also, what do we do, lay the bike down on a nice blanket on its left side or something? (With the Tiger there was a threat of oil seeping into the cylinders if left down for too long.)

Thanks guys--rg
