So starting low and front. The crash bars are first. I have Vision X and Stebel mounted there so zip ties and cables get moved.
The system includes a bunch of zip lock bags. Labeled because I’m a bit paranoid about losing track of all these parts.
Draining the oil. Comes later in the actual “book” but I figure this was a convenient time.
Digging towards the battery next.
Disconnect the change-over valve plug. Habor Freight provides great stuff, like the zip tie labels for all the various cables.
Temp sensor plug.
Screws for the intake air silencer.
Hoses from the idle actuator.
Book says to disconnect the hose from cylinder-head cover. I left it and disconnected from the bottom of the air box.
Can. Springs first.
Note to self. Master link crimp faces out. (To get the chain back on in the same direction.)
Rear caliper zip tied to frame.
Lost the pic of the rear brake line cover. Basically, left side of swing arm. One bolt and plastic cover.
Chain slide rail.
Bottom shock mount.
Propped the swing arm just to be sure. Wasn’t necessary. Cat caught it.
Swing Arm axel nut. 21mm. Had to run back to Harbor Freight. Only 21mm I’ve seen on this bike.
Actually removing the chain slide rail now.
Swing arm out.
Chain off. (...and to think this is what would be necessary to change the OEM chain....insane....I’ll stick with the master link.)
