I finished removing the front end from the bike last week. I wrote up two articles showing how I do this work that you can find here:
Before doing this work, I also removed the center stand as I put the bike on my portable motorcycle lift to make it easier to remove the wheels and forks.
In summary, these articles show how to remove:
- Handlebar controls,
- Instruments & bracket
- Steering damper,
- Front fender,
- Front wheel,
- front fender brace,
- Front forks
- Steering stem & fork top plate
I started here:
and ended up here.
Next on the work list is removing the rear wheel, rear drive, swing arm, rear sub-frame and seat lock mechanism.
