engine pull

doin an engine pull over here got a few questions if anyone has the time i was wondering how the air box comes out or if theres a trick i dont know about to get the carbs out ive messed around a lil but figured id ask do you disconnect the cables before the carbs are removed also i havent got this far but i was wondering the easiest way to disconnect the shaft drive got the tank off and everything unhooked that i can just looking for some advice from someone who has been there or knows what i am askin thanks o and i am pulling the engine to replace the shift linkage and its a 2001

"So, Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take valves out, fix 'em, put 'em back in and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work?"

The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over and whispered to the mechanic ...

Not sure if there's a trick to the airbox, I tried to finesse it out, after about 5 minutes got pissed, I started turning green muscles were tearing through my clothes and I ripped the fuqer out.

Leave the carbs on the motor, but disconnect all the cables, its easiest to get to the choke cable from the right side of the bike. Skinny needle nose and skinny flathead will be your friend.

Some people leave the front bevel gear on, I took mine off, I think its 7 8mm bolts. Unscrew bolts wiggle the gear box some and pull out and to the right a little, don't forget to remove the aluminum rod from the bevel gear so it doesn't hang up on the frame and get bent.

Also, I don't have a manual for the bike so I downloaded the first page for engine removal that way I could use it for a checklist. The only problem I had is that I used a big automotive hydro jack for it to rest on and it wouldn't really lower enough to clear everything, I would suggest using a smaller jack if you can.

if you have the bike on level pavement you can wiggle a cinder block under it and set another one on the right side it is the perfect height set them long ways sticking out the right side of the bike

pull off the bevel gear

leave the throttle cables attached to the carbs but pull the choke cable off

once you have the motor slid out sitting on the cinder blocks you can then pull the carbs easy

oh and that crappy air box stays there as the motor comes out from under it when putting the motor back in just get some string and tie the air box up so you can work under it

Download repair manual here....http://www.mediafire.com/?mj7z818grhbdy3x

The front bevel gear is the gearcase by the left rear side of engine, has a circular Chrome cap on it.

You can get rid of the air box and install pods (k&n's or emgo's). Go to the search bar up top and check out "earshave".
