Easy way to getting spline on shaft!!

Well, I figured out the secret to getting that spline to motor together ALONE....
Only took 63 tries, one VERY sore back and 8 hours to discover better idea
and it took 10 minutes to get it done...

Saving motor stress, I locked the front end and jacked bike up from the left fork.
Jacking front end up a good 3-4" off the ground and lay... YES, lay the back tire on its side on a 3" block, shaft on top... Slide that bugger in.. Using the very free wheel and pushing turn till it slides in...
Once in, while pushing back tire keeping spine in shaft, carefully turn back wheel
lining up with mounting hole... Ta, Da!!! Took me 10 minutes..

You can put trans in gear to keep the shaft from turning. Line up splines and push shaft into place.
