    Hey all,
    Just wanted to post my about my success pulling the engine outa my bike. Crazy experience so far, better feeling of achievement than playing Zelda right now.
    Bought the bike used last year, had a full summer of riding before the bike started falling apart on me. Oil leaks, slipping clutch, trouble starting, etc. Decided to rip the thing apart incase it needed some deep maintenance. Sure enough it did.
    Here I am, no experience in the field what so ever, experiencing the zen that is bike maintenence. Pulled the tank off, dropped the engine, pulled the carbs, pulled the engine. I am in bliss. Wish I documented what I did up until now (the electrical would have thanked me later). But I'll begin to do so in garage. That said, the engine is ready for work, and I am amped.

    Let's get this.
