Haha, well the moral to the story is: if you're going to support a DL650 on a harbor freight dual-rail motorcycle jack by assorted wooden blocks, please be sure it's strapped down DAMN tight to something that won't move. I thought strapping the rear end down to an 8 foot 2x6 running under the rear wheel would do. It didn't. I and a friend employed a hoist thru the handlebar to the garage rafters to lift it, then suspended it from said rafter to the crashbars on either side. It has been thusly suspended for two days while I wait for parts, and is what I should have done in the first place.

To a man with a hammer, every problem looks like a nail, I guess.

Also, the top triple-clamp is now misaligned to the bottom one. How hard is it to realign?

And if I were to redo my head bearings (unnecessary but, everything's apart) what bearing tools are needed?
