Steve this is a great write up. The trick I want to know is for the little snap ring that holds the center gear on the countershaft. I got it off with two flat blade screw drivers but is there a tool just for this type of ring? Looks like two reversed arrows on each end.

I don't think I could afford you! Plus, I am having fun learning as I go. Hopefully, I can steal bits of your knowledge through these postings for free!!!!! I do promise that if I am ever in SF, steaks and beer are on me.

John,

I just use the big snap ring pliers. The snap ring is still a pain to remove. Getting it back in place is easy. Just get it on the shaft and use the next gear to push it into place.

Excellent write up as always Steve.

Thanks that's exactly what I did. Something I just noticed this afternoon is the original motor out of this bike has hex head bolts in all the cases and covers. The motor that's in the bike that I redid last year has all socket head bolts. I suppose someone could have changed them or did Honda switch at some point.

Thanks B. It was in such bad shape I didn't notice at the time they were different.

I'm charging her $250.00. I usually get $50.00 an hour. What with all the picture taking and posting here alone was 1.5 hours yesterday.

Jeff,

The XL owner had that hose made as he couldn't fine a OE part.
