the cam chain either has a masterlink or it needs to be broken apart if no masterlink. Are you changing the chain? Please do some study first.
Also try dansmc.com to learn about this stuff. Good luck my friend.
Wrong. You do not break the cam chain and there is not masterlink.
Remove the right side cover, remove the clutch, remove the locknut and gear off the crankshaft. You also do need to remove the oil pump.
I just did this today. Then I split the cases and removed the crankshaft. Very easy engine to work on.
