Smile ....been vacant for last 12+ months

....been vacant for last 12+ months, but now getting back in to VN750's. Took a year off for other interests....miss riding, so now I will continue to finish overhaul (replaced engine with loss of oil pressure).
............Now, can I remember how to reassemble the bike ? ?

That's also how I build my bikes. That's why they're always throwing parts off of them

Try to find and watch as much video as you can on reassembly. I'm pretty sure you're already aware of this, but just in case, go here for the engine rebuild videos. Also, reading some of the comments wouldn't be a bad idea.

Cross your fingers that you didn't loose any screws and that you don't end up with any extra screws once its reassemble.

Williamtech wont have any issues with the rebuild I am sure. he's a long lost member, finally finding his way back to the flock.

BTW, welcome back, from who just might be the southernmost active member (at least in the continental US).

edit: I forgot there is one or 2 of us over in the miami area, which would be south of me.. but not by much

Oh Oh, I may have a few already. LOL

Engine removed from another 750 (already assembled), mounted in my frame.....now to re-assemble bike back together. I think it'll come back to me as I progress, thus making it easier.

I hadn't found the link for video's or threads on this new redesigned platform page. (till now....thanks for the assistance).
