It seems like it would be a lot easier if I took off the triple clamp and then took off each handlebar clamp. This way when I put the new ones on I could properly torque the nuts.
Is there any reason why I shouldn't do this? To remove the triple clamp I just remove the pinch bolts and then the steering stem nut?
That's how I did mine when I had to replace the ignition. It really is not that hard. I hung my bars from the overhead, took off the headlight shroud and then all the stuff hanging on the tree. Came right off.
Now I did mine like that because of the ignition and never checked if it could be done another way. Maybe a wobble socket would work.??
