started my winter project today  Grin I'm getting my frame powdercoated black.


took the tank and seat off

but...

one of the wires for the low fuel switch  snagged on something when I pulled it off after I disconnected the hoses  Cry


and that's enough for today.

got the airbox off today as well as the headlight assy. & the seat pan






now comes the tedious part of labeling the rest of the wiring and taking pictures of how it all comes off & goes back on.

Hey Grubby, at least you are drinking good beer.  You might want to go to an electrical supply shop and get some of the numbering stickers to stick on all of your wiring harness and connections.  I've often used different colors of fingernail polish to "dot" screws/bolts and their receiving hole/nut, then remover after work is completed.  The digital camera is a great idea.
Good luck.  Keep us posted.

those were from over the weekend, we had some friends over.

notice all the blue painters tape splotches all over it, that's my wiring labels and then every bolt I can put back in after removing things has been done, or they're taped in place on what comes off.

I've worked on enough cars & trucks to learn it's really bad news when you have a small handfull of bolts left over after putting things back together. Hence all the tape and pictures, you're only seeing 1/4 of them.

Reminds me of that old toy, the Sit-N-Spin.  Nothing like getting your kids addicted to getting dizzy.  I always thought that they should make adult versions of some of these toys.  I can visualize a whole bar where all of the tables/chairs are oversized sit-n-spins.  Shots all around!!!
Also thought an adult sized Big Wheel would be a lot of un too.  I was too big when they we introduced.  My brother had one and I wanted to ride it soooo bad and spin it out like on the TV commercials.
He Grubby, if you could find an old wide base scissor jack and modify it to cradle your engine, that would be pretty sweet.

thought about that, sort of, I got an old scissor jack out of my old oldsmobile I'd considered welding a 12 x 12 piece of 1/2" plate. I'd rather have at least 4 points of contact though with the motor mounts and swing arm mount. the more I look at it  the more I think I might ought to drop the swingarm first, support it the peel the frame off and support the front motor mount. that way I don't have to take the headers off yet, or maybe at all.

I could if I were to put a support structure in the ceiling in the garage, but I haven't got the slightest idea what it would take. I've got an engine hoist coming when I need it, I just don't want to lay the motor in the floor.

Took off the rear brake, right rearset, and emisisons canister last night. I'll get pictures this afternoon.
