Well I got the crankcase split got everything out exept the trans, Now the question. how do you get the trans out? do you just pull up on it and if so does it stay all together?

Yes, that is the tricky part. It is possible to get the trany out all in one shot, (I managed to pull it off) but it wasn't very easy. I kinda had to lean the crankcase over and slowly pull on the different sets of gears to get everything to come out together. Slow and easy, you can do it!

Not to hassle you, kenny, but yeah, seeing some pics of the work in progress is always a bonus!

Good work getting the trany out. Did you manage to keep it all together? I wired mine together after I got it out to make sure it didn't slip apart when I wasn't looking.

I didn't take any pics of the motor tear down this time. I am with the motor I am using this was just a test run to see how hard it was and go ahead and make mistakes if I was gonna. The trans came pretty much in one piece I used tie raps on the shafts to keep the gears on. It's pretty cool to see how all this works I have rebuilt a lot of car motors but this is my first bike rebuild. I promise plenty of pics when I start to take mine apart

well I got a little progress done on bike today. I got the air box and overflow tank back on. Does anyone know if you can still get the grommets that hold the relays and fuel pump and stuff on I had some that was rotten.

Looking good!!
What about the removable frame, the one you have to remove to install the engine? Aren't you going to powder coat it?

Some of the rubber grommets can still be found. But I can't find the fuel pump holder. Only with a fuel pump attached to it and they are expensive. Try to convince one of those ebay guys to sell you just the rubber holder.

Looking good, Kenny. You guys are making me wish I would have restored my whole bike and not just rebuild the engine. Oh well, I have next year.
Yeah, as Luis said, finding just the pump holder might be difficult. If you have a local mech nearby, you'll probably have better luck there getting your hands on just the pump holder. Or at least buying a pump and holder for cheaper than ebay is offering. But if Luis can't find it, it's probably very slim-pickins.
