My 1040 Project

14/10/2020 - Bike Strip Down
The stripdown was straight forward, I began with removing the panels, the headlight and clocks come off as 1 unit by undoing the 2 bolts on the headstock, discconecting all the wires and cables and removing. Next was the radiator, then the exhaust system, then the airfilter, carbs, wiring loom.

The engine was easy, place a trolley jack under the engine, loosen the 4 bolts on the head, then the 2 long bolts at the rear of the engine, remove all said bolts and lower the engine down.
After the engine was out, remove the front end as 1 unit and you are then left with 3 main units, frame with back wheel, front end and engine.
