Working on my drain plug repair and was thinking....Can my motor come out in one piece or will I have to pull the head and jug first? As always much thanks for the info....
I'm with LoneRider, weld it in place. Stick a piece of wood into the drain hole to stop the heat.
The motor will come out without removing the cylinder. The motor mounts come off. There's a long bolt under the swing arm also.
I would put a jack under the motor before you start pulling the bolts, it's heavy!
It would be a good time to grease up the shock linkage. Be warned if you try to pull the swing arm bolt it's usually corroded in place. Soak it with PB Blaster or similar overnight and use a big hammer and drift.
