    haha finally found the time and muscle to pull this bastard out of its cage! I pulled it from the right side all by myself and damn I nearly broke my back putting it up on the bench. Thing is probably like 200 pounds or something.

    I weighed one a long time ago and got around 120lbs. Not too bad till I tried to move a xs650 motor. Those are 200+. Easiest way is to put the bike on its side and lift the frame off.

    These little 400s are not bad. I have pulled a couple and put them back in.........now my 920 V twin I had to make a cradle to move it........I dont even want to attempt picking it up.....

    Just remember tape the hell out of the frame.........no one wants to scratch the fresh paint when re installing it........

    And yes on the side works great. I saw a few 1100s that were done that way but I think thats the only way your going to get a inline 4 in the frame........
