Patience! Take pictures of EVERYTHING! I laid all the parts out on a table, organized into 4 sections: left side, right side, front cylinder and back cylinder.
Watch the rebuild videos. The balancer wheel nut is reverse threaded.

A 18mm bolt can be used to remove the spark plug tubes, and to pry off the flywheel.

The only special tools I needed were crow foot wrenches (10mm and 12mm).

Follow the head bolt loosening order.

Download the service manual (someone here has a link).

Parts may take over a month to ship.

EBay is a great source for some parts.

Pick up some TB1207B (Honda Bond, Suzuki Bond etc). Smear a thin layer on the gaskets before installing.


Get a few cans of brake clean.

Be prepared to scrape at the old gaskets.
