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.
Thank man I took a lot of pictures and video telling myself where things went and what order I think I should go when I start putting the motor back on
