Thanks for the tips. I'm based in Southern France so yeah, any help is welcome. Beer is aplenty..
I've 'found' the factory repair manual, it helps. Gee, taking apart all these connectors is a chore. On my '84 Tenere there were just a couple of those to undo and that was it
Now I need to find an anchor point to lift the frame, and a way to hold the engine in place once it's off.
I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
