I need help!

I have a vn1500, just replaced stator, piece of cake. My brother has same problem on his vn750, told him to bring it over, no big deal. Turns out to be a huge deal. Long story short, Ive got his engine ready to come out except for a couple motor mounts and driveshaft. As far as I can tell, it looks like the rear tire and swing arm has to come off, am I right or is there a simpler way?

Just remove the bevel gear case in front of the swing arm from the engine, unbolt it and the motor will come out and leave it hanging on the bike.Watch the bolts as they are different lengths and need to go back where they came from. The gear case has a cover that looks a lot like the swingarm caps in the center of it. Unbolt the bolts that hold that case on ,you don't have to pull the swingarm

I appreciate the feedback, saved me alot of trouble. Im just about done, I was wondering if Im going to have coolant issues, am I supposed to bleed the system? On that link you posted someone mentioned coolant bubbles and said they were going to start the bike on the bottle only?

just open the bleeder on the thermostat housing and it should bleed itself as you fill it with coolant!

just open the bleeder on the thermostat housing and it should bleed itself as you fill it with coolant!And they were probably referring to a remote fuel reservoir bottle and you do know to fill it up next to the steering head at the little radiator cap and not just the coolant tank ?

I found the bleeder valve, bike seems to be running good. Again, all help is appreciated. This is a cool bike, its just really quiet. Were thinking about knocking the baffles out and rejetting. I was going to get a kit and just go up one needle at a time until its synced, do you know recommended jet size for open pipes?

that was what I was trying to find when I posted the thread from the verses wib,looks like he has got thru it though,he must be a pretty fair wrench to get it the first time with so few questions and you shouldn't have to rejet with just opening up the exhaust the intake is fairly restrictive from the factor on these bikes too ,Take a3/8" drill bit and drill four holes at 12,3,6, and 9 o'clock positions around the stock baffles,start it up and if it is still too quiet ,drill four more between them and see if that is more to your liking ,most have found that the sound doesn't change a whole lot unless you go with after market exhaust or build your own. but I would try it and see if it was what I wanted first.
