I could make use of a follow up post as well.
How did it go? Any surprises?
I started the process a couple of days ago, but halted when I realized that even when removing one side at a time, the engine needs to be supported, at least that's how it seemed to me. Perhaps because it was on the side stand?
Anyway, I've got a centerstand now, and intend to tackle this issue once again, this time with a jack underneath the engine. Still leery of surprises though.
Don't like surprises.
