    It is usually easiest to work with the engine if you remove the engine from the frame.
    Many shy away from this but it is very easy to do.
    In the guide, I have removed the back fairing too but it's not necessary.

    Forgive my bad English :(
    I'm from Sweden..

    Checkout the youtubeclip at the end It is in Swedish, but can probably help anyway

    Clamping a strap in the frame and engine
    (not necessary if you have a centerstand)
    The strap ensures that the engine does not fall to the floor when the bolt is pulled out

    I knock out the bolt using a pin
    Pic 21
    The engine is held up by strap
    Pic 22
    I lower the motor by gently relax the strap
    Pic 23
    Pull the motor straight back
