Sheet 2 was edited to fix a bad error on the foot peg bolt torque. Should be 18 ft-lb, not 33 ft-lb.

Good stuff here guys! Tom hats off!

On another note,,,, Looking at the schematic, has anyone bypassed all the hoopla so you can start these things in gear, clutch in??

Thinking hard about it here!

Very handy info. Especially the torques.

An other printing option I use is waterproof printer paper from an office supply house (on or off line). Won't smudge smear or tear.

Awesome info! Thanks a bunch.

Oil level info, I'm assuming when the bike is on the kick stand, not being supported up right and only on the wheels, correct?

No, incorrect!

Check oil level with bike level.

Filling to sight glass mark with bike on kickstand over-fills.

(I think this information is consonant with the Owner's Manual. If not, correction and clarification welcomed.)

Excellent info guys. Can't wait to get into mods for my bike (well... and get riding and wrenching on it).

Thanks

Gomotor found another error.

The spark plug gap was listed as .08-.09mm.

The correct figure is .8-.9mm.

File corrected.
