Got my Sito pipes from Phil today. They're freaking perfect.

At this point, I have all parts except fasteners and such, with the exception of a seat. I'm now just looking for a Corbin gunfighter and lady and I'll use that while I look for an original seat.

This weekend, I'll actually be home, so there should be actual progress.
Dave, I marked the wires that came off of the relays in the headlight according to which relay they connected to. I also marked the relays and put back together whatever I could after the shell was empty.
The vast majority of wires connect to the board according to the colored sections.
Take pictures of how the harnesses run around the headstock and frame.
Then send them to me because I forgot that step.

Happy wrenching...

Steve-0: happy to see that re-size thing worked out!

As you were fellah's.

Oh, I sent this to some of the afflicted.

Edit: Just read the whole thread. Thank you for adding a new obtuse reference to my lexicon. I'll now be wondering if "scope creep" is a proct-o-logical term.

You're doing important work there Dave! Your karmic score is on the rise.

Wheels off, swingarm off, front end off, brake system off, bars off. If I can get the electrical system off, I'll be stoked.

Next weekend is Death Valley, so I won't get anything done that weekend.

This weekend, I also want to fashion some kind of stand to hold the motor. In fact, it might be easier if I just get it to a point where the motor can come out before I take the wheels and stuff off, huh? I mean, right now, I've got a centerstand and wheels to hold the whole mess up.

I don't know if you're going to do the top end on the motor but the it's a bit lighter when the heads, jugs, and pistons are removed.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

That's definitely a bridge too far. It runs great, so I'm not gonna muck around with it.

Great thread, I too have a last edition CS, for years it sat languishing with fairly low miles underneath a friend's carport(he has a garage with just junk in it?)Every six months or so for maybe five years I ask if he wants to sell it. The answer is always no. One spring day on my way to buy an XLCR I run into my friend who coincidently was permantly laid off after 33 years the day before.(financially he was fine it was intial shock)He mentions he might want to sell the CS, I reach in my pocket whip out the money for the XLCR...Sold! It'spart of the permanent collection now, still want an XLCR

U Haul sells/rents some great dollies. They're about 24"x 24" and you can screw a piece of plywood to them and viola you have a rolling motor stand that's going to look great in your atrium. Trust me, it will.
You will need a strong back to help if you don't remove the top end. B and I were able to remove my motor but the top end was off.

Feh. All you really need is good food and beer for a guy like me who is 6'2" and 270 lbs. I swapped out my R90 motor a few years back by myself in about 4 hours. It's not an easy thing to do solo, and I'm probably damned lucky to not have caught any fingers during the process.
Look at buying one of those lifts that Harbor Freight and Sears sell that go under the enigne of the bike. You can rig up some more padding for the cylinders, and there are tie-down points at the corners. When you're done with the Airhead you'll have a nice little lift for miscellaneous bike chores.

OK, so I get the shaft drained, get the final drive off and slide back the cover to start working on the driveshaft bolts. I put the bike in 5th gear and start to loosen one of the bolts.

And the shaft just turns around as nice as can be.

Suggestions? Put the final drive back on so I can apply rear brake to hold the bolts tight?

I did the zact same thing! LOL....almost...Only I hadn't removed the final drive, but I had removed the rear wheel. All I had to do was put the rear wheel back on, and was able to hold onto it to break the shaft nuts loose. Good luck, keep up the good work.....

Try putting it in first gear instead of fifth.
