No. I persevered with the wrecking bar and heat and a different stance!

I'm trying not to imagine the 'stance' ;)

Well, that was interesting. one of the fork stanchions came out of the lower leg without undoing the nut at the bottom! The circlip is missing! Five jobs to do then clean up time for the cycle parts.

Remove other fork lower.
Remove centre stand bump stop rubbers from frame.
Remove starter motor bearing from side casing.
Remove broken bolt from bottom yoke.
Remove snapped bolt from switchgear and remove from clipon.

Simples!

The damper circlip fell out of the fork leg!

All apart, but the frame is really greasy. Hopefully have it done tomorrow. Needs to be grease free for the best painting experience.

On with the engine next week.

Well done. I really must get stuck in to my Winter 2018 project. A cunning plan involving perming two engines from two engines and a pair of Kanguro heads.

Does it involve Kangaroo heads on pillows?

Nah, safely nestling in cardboard boxes with new valve springs and stainless inlet valves to go with them.

Have you got down to a bare crank yet?
