A Little More Progress (Teardown Day 3)

Meh… some days you just don’t feel it. Today was a couple hours of work, but I feel like I accomplished about 20 minutes of progress. Oh well… the back fender is off, front pegs are off, and I took off a bunch of other shit. There are about as many parts on the shelf as there are parts on the bike. I am determined to take it to the frame… so we are moving ahead. I drained the oil, opened the primary, and in general have the bike “dry” now. Next I need to remove the front fender, then drop the front forks. Once the front forks are off, the engine and transmission will come out. I leave for a couple weeks of business travel right after the first of the year – maybe I can get the frame stripped by then. (I knew the day was in the crapper when I dropped my flashlight and it landed in the drain pan full of used oil.)
