Take the pain out of restora­tion

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Comment -

Here is a quick tip for old farts like me who en­joy restor­ing old bikes. A cou­ple of years ago I re­stored a Kawasaki GT550, and nearly gave my­self a hernia get­ting the engine out. I have just fin­ished a Yamaha XJ650. I thought there must be an eas­ier way. My so­lu­tion? I re­moved all the engine mount­ing bolts from the right hand side, laid down some car­pet, placed the bike down on the right hand side, then re­moved the bolts from the other side and lifted the frame off.
