So that's the end of day 1. Five hours of wrenching got me as far as the exhaust pipes off the bike. I had to make two tool runs: 21mm socket for the swing arm axel nut, and 10mm 12-point socket for the exhaust flange nuts.

Not as far along as I'd like but no catastrophic issues (that I'm aware of).

I realized also, that I forgot to order gaskets for the exhaust header pipes. I'm hoping it's common enough for the dealer to have them in stock. [EDIT: it's not. ] Speaking of which, the day actually started at the dealer picking up a partial order. Conspicuously absent are my new cam sprockets. [EDIT: sprockets look like new so not an issue.] I should see them in four or five days. I'll decide what to do once I see the inside of this engine.
