This was my first time pulling the transmission and I recall my major problem was when pulling the transmission back it hit on a frame member and I couldn't get the internal clutch (thrust?) rod to clear. As I was doing this with no helper I remember trying to get the transmission to clear and the damn clutch rod was getting in the way.

In hindsight (with a helper) I could have pushed the rod into the transmission to get it to clear. Next time will be easier. Would be nice to pull the swingarm, and not deal with the engine pins.
My GS pulls to the right...or the left...depending on what side of the road the Tim Horton's is on.
