Great writeup and pictures Steve!

Hey, you've got very nice hands for a man (in spite of what David tells me).

Very nicely done Steve! Not to mention timely. My starter has started to drag a bit when the butten is released and I will be doing this repair soon.

Thanks!

Jim

Jim, those ARE David's hands. I was holding the camera.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

It's kind of like a bonus, Jamie. Everyone needs a gear puller.

Hey, and thanks to all of you for the nice comments. I've received so much useful information from so many of you. This is just a token of my appreciation.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I was wondering if it would be possible to get the owner of this site to make a tab for all these great procedures in a PDF format so they could be in one place instead of constantly searching for them?

Most of them are, Howard. Click "M/C FAQ" from the menu at the top. This one was just created, but with Steve's permisssion (Steve? Steve?) we'll add it, as well. Meanwhile, we'll "keep" the thread so that it does not auto-delete.

Howard, Most of the write-ups like this have been collected in the MC/FAQ page (click here) located in the header on each page under the "touring" in the site's title. There is also a DB faq below that, but they are different pages. As far as putting them all in PDF format, personally, I do not have that software (or ability! ) and or the additional time, but if you do, and would like to contribute any expertise to the project, please feel free! Remember this is a free site run by volunteers and it is always a matter of free time available to do things like this. Many people have stepped up and made some great contributions like this as well as even more time and resource intensive one's (like Ted's Spline Lube Procedure DVD! ) For our continued success, "We've come to rely on the kindness of strangers!" I would think that anyone who has posted these sorts of write-ups would not have any problem with it being made available in PDF format, but as a courtesy, I would check with the authors just to make sure. If you do put something together, let one of the Administrators know and they can add it to the M/C FAQ page for everyone to benefit from! This board is so great because of the time and effort the members contribute! [edit: Dang, that guy types fast! ]

Thanks Steve, very well done. Perhaps Iíll take a look at the starter motor as a precaution this winter ,with your walkthrough it should be a breeze.
Thanks again
