Re: Clutch is removed
Make sure you mark the clutch parts coming off as they are balanced 1/3 each of the three. Unless you are putting on new parts, just mark them and put them back the same way... Don't ask me how I know this.... The valves will have to be checked at some point, most do not need adjustment, maybe you'll get lucky. As for the valve cover gasket, reuse the dam thing if its not damaged. Your going in the right direction, keep your head down and take it one process at a time and you'll be there before you know it. (i.e. wheel off, done. drive shaft, done, swing arm, done. etc...) To aid in the speed of the removal, I took the final drive and swing arm off in one piece. I had to disassemble it to get it back on, but no real biggie. Your call.
