Great picture! Looks like a marketing shot for Honda... All it needs is a catchy tag line.

Lets see the questions....

JE 102, clearances done professionally. <3k miles on it. 10/30 synth oil.

I have a pretty good idea what happened. I just have to make a few phone calls.

Got the motor mounted and boy is it a pain in the bu++ to get it on there alone. The "lay it down on its side trick worked really well and got her in there with the least amount of nicks to the paint.
Btw, Do y'all suggest thread lockers to be applied to the bolts on the mounts and the swing arm? (Sorry, never done any kind of a stip down of this degree before)

If you don't plan on taking it apart again. Something like that I would use loctite red.

You cant tell me what to do. You're not my real dad.

I've lost ALOT of fasteners on the trail which most recently led to a right side panel somewhere between home and Reno.

Bolts that hold on the fuel tank, seat pan bolts. License plate bolts, taillight cover bolts, headlight shroud, clutch lever bolts.....

Do what you want. Just a suggestion.
