XS 750 engine is one heavy SOB

| November 27, 2011 | 0 Comments

I figured my best option for removing my engine was to lay the bike to one side, then pull the frame up and off of it.  It’s turned out to be such a tight fit even after all engine mounting and oil filter was removed that I figured if I took off both wheels that would make the frame light enough to maneuver over the engine.

No, that has not been the case.

So now I’m going to just pull the head and jugs off instead which would make it light enough and give me enough room to pull it out.  Since I want to powder coat the engine anyway I’m going forward with this.  I should have followed the manual since this was their recommendation from the start.

Live and learn eh?
