1. Remove the engine from the motorcycle as
described in this chapter.
2. Remove the secondary shaft bearing cap
from the alternator side of the engine (Figure

Ignition Advance in Chapter Eight.
5. Check that all parts outside ofthe crankcase
have been removed from the engine (Figure

mechanism removal are not essential
unless you plan to replace those parts or
the crankshaft seals.

(Figure 116).

chain play. The primary chain should be
replaced when it has more than 0.98 in.

the secondary shaft sprocket carefully
when you replace the chain. It is likely
that both will need to be replaced at the
same time.

secondary shaft with a soft driver until the
other end pushes the bearing out (Figure 118).
