Okey dokey. Chipping away at it here, flyin' solo. Just spent about 45 minutes trying to install the little clip that hold the large rubber breather tube (?) to the top right of the airbox. Finally swapped the stock clip for a worm clamp and that was way way easier...

So, I got the airbox in, but runninginto some "order of assembly issues" for sure.

In order to install the airbox I had to drop the shock (it was still attached to the lower swingarm).

Now, to install the shock it looks like I will have to remove the rear wheel again. 2 steps forward, one step back.

If anybody is reading this...any other ordering things I should pay attention to? Brake lines, footpegs, starter, battery, a million wires...

A bit daunting, but it is, in fact, taking shape. Hope to be test-riding before Friday and ride-riding on the weekend.
