Goes without saying.

Of course you will tape that lovely powder coated frame before you attempt to install the engine. I just installed mine myself by mating the transmission after mounting the engine. I still had the cylinders on so it was a bit heavy but I was impatient and didn't wait for the burly lads to help me. Without the cylinders, should be a piece of cake but remember the tape. I used ordinary electrical tape but Chris Harris from Affordable Beemers on YouTube recommends green painters tape covered with duct tape as an extra precaution. I also placed a floor jack with a piece of plywood on it beneath the bike to help with the alignment. Worked like a charm.
