  • removeing engine,should i winterize

    First of all what special tools do i need, should i winterize the engine before i remove it,and is anyone else out there doing this right now. and should i remove the engine first and then take apart the rest of the bike. oh yea i'm haveing the frame swing arm and other part powder coated. i ask this because i have a friend that says if a motor sits for a mouth or so it clogs up the cyliders or something.

    not sure how you're gonna winterize the motor if she's comming out. winterize would consist of topping off all fluids and or overfilling the oil a bit (from what i've read). i think it would be much eaiser to remove an engine that has been drained of all fluids .once you get it out bag the motor up and keep in a dry place. good luck and make sure to show us some pics of the process

              i was reading the manual and i see you have to remove all the wireing and air tubes and things well i was wondering is there a quicker way to do it.
