Engine removal / shaft drive question

I have to remove my engine and was wondering exactly how do I separate the drive assembly from from the final drive to get the engine out? Do I just pull engine forward and out or do I remove rear wheel and pull internal shaft out? Thanks.

I had a floor jack with a 1/2 piece of plywood mounted to it to roll the engine off the bike. I twisted the engine to the right as I pulled it forward just a bit, reached into the shaft tube with my fingers and pushed back on the shaft. Popped apart and the engine was lose from it. When doing this I had the bike on the center stand so when it went back together I could turn the back tire to help align the splines.

Well, I finally got it out. Wasn't as bad as I was imagining. Just a little finagling. Now on to the tear down to fix a 10 cent part.

Well, now you have it out. Do everything you can afford to do before you reinstall. Better stator, new balancers, check valve springs, lap valves, rings, hone cylinder, etc. ??
