No need to think, just dive in. Its really pretty straight forward, just set your laptop in front of the bike and have at it.

The first time might take you a little while as you learn your way around the parts, but the second time goes way quicker. Hell, I did one in a campground in the middle of the Atacama without a lot of cursing and tool throwing, and if i can do it, anyone can.

Pay close attention to how that head pipe comes out from under the frame, because there will be a test a little bit later on.

+1

I had never in my life broken into an engine further than the oil filter. I had never even taken a clutch apart. I pulled it off by paying CLOSE attention and followed Pyn's example step for step.

If in doubt, stop, look it up, or ask. We'll get you through it.

I've initiated Water Pump rebuild on my bike. I know that if something is wrong I should notice coolant in the oil, but I actually noticed oil in the coolant.
Has anyone observed oil in coolant and is rebuilding the water pump going to fix it?

It goes both ways, when the oil pressure drops water will pass the seal, when the oil pressure climbs the oil goes into the water.. In any case its kinda the lowest cost place to start and its a maintenance item so you don't lose. Most other causes would have symptoms that are significant..

My .02 dollars worth..
