Removing the Engine! need some help.

Hello everyone (wow i keep on making threads) Your help has been invaluable up untill now with electronics and repairs.

And since I need to replace my stator and dont have a mod I need to undertake what is in my mind my biggest challenge yet, removing the engine from the frame!
And could use some help from you guys. This is the current state of my progress and will continue tomorrow morning.

I was wondering what i still have to undertake in order to be able to remove the engine from the frame. Especially how and if I need to remove the shaft drive. And if I can place something underneath the engine and then let it sit on it after removing the bolts that connect the engine to the frame without breaking something I forgot.

(I know people use service manuals to do these kinds of jobs and i have a haynes manual but it doesnt state this job and how to do it)

Have you considered just tilting the engine? There's a lot less to remove/disconnect that way. I was glad I did, since I had to do it twice in two days due to a mistake I made the first time.

Floor jack under the engine is a must, and tie the centerstand forward so it can't fold back.

There's a download for another service/parts manual in my signature.

Edit: Never mind the tilt, I see it still has the airbox, so unless you want to remove that, I don't think it will tilt. Removing the airbox in one piece requires disconnecting the rear section of the wiring harness and pulling the harness forward out of the frame

Throttle cables are one item yet to be removed.

I don't have any experience with pulling the engine, but when I tilted mine, I left the bevel gear case, exhaust manifolds, and throttle cables all on the engine.

I have, this was the plan I had, but dont know how, do i lift the front end of the engine? or do i move the engine to the right side out of the frame to get to the stator box?

Also, do i need to remove the crankshaft from the engine? I imagine this is connected to the engine right?
And how do I do this?

+ can i leave the throttle cable on? Since i dont know if it needs a sync once i put em back on.

See my edit below on tilting.

Pulling the engine completely out, carb cables have to come off. Driveshaft can stay in, but I'm pretty sure you have to take the bevel gearcase off.

Yes, bevel gear can stay on the engine, driveshaft stays in. Airbox will have to come out. And you'll need at least two ratcheting tie downs.

See if this is any help, some pics there: https://www.vn750.com/forum/19-elect...ancer-job.html

That's what the whole "engine tilt" process is. Spockster did a good writeup with pictures. You need to get the engine far enough away from that left frame rail that you can slip the stator case past the shift shaft. Personally I found it to be about the same work to just remove the engine, which is what I did.

If the screws are stuck, you need one like this.
Check local auto supply.
Get a slender one and you can use it on the carb screws.
Be sure it's set to ccw and not clockwise or you risk breaking the screws.
