Post Engine Fire Cleanup Pics

The first thumbnail shows the engine cleaned up and rewired before I put the tank on.

Next shows my method of tranny removal: the engine hoist lifts the bike onto the jackstands. I get underneath, undo 'er and PULL.

Weepholes are drilled for the tranny and clutch slave. The underside hasn't been that clean since it left Munich I bet.

Last pic shows the modified 30mm socket ($15 from Autozone) with a 12mm Allen key ($8 from Sears) for setting the torque on the swing arm and final drive.

Enough typing. I'm going for a ride...

Re: Post Engine Fire Cleanup Pics

How did you make the opening in the 30 mm socket? I have a 30 MM socket from AutoZone that is chrome plated steel, made by Great Neck.
Thanks!

Re: Post Engine Fire Cleanup Pics

Sully,
My friend the tooling engineer cut the slot for me - same guy that loaned me the engine hoist.

Place the socket lying down in the vise under a drill press or milling machine. Drill about a 5/8" hole slightly off center completely through the socket. Take a tool grinder or hacksaw and connect the two holes. He was nice enough to clean up the sides with the milling machine while I drank one of his beers. You'll have to cut about a 1/2" off of the end of the Allen key also while your at it. That way, you stick it in the slot and rotate 90 degrees.
