Time to get this bike up and running and starting my journey with my first stumble...





Time to get the stator and clutch packs off so I can split the cases. I jammed a piece of soft nylon into the primary chain and wedged it in. I used my IR244 and zapped the primary nut off and used reverse for the nut on the clutch pack. Of course you have to remove the snap ring on the clutch pack and remove the little plate to get to the nut. It's reverse thread and thanks to Youtube, I'd have never guessed.



And here is the freed up case, ready to remove the allen bolts, don't forget the one under the shifter.



And just like that, the cases are apart.

I realize now I did not have to get the big "honkin'" socket or remove the large gear on the right side case. Oh Well. Hopefully I can save someone else the trouble.



Voila, the source of my misery.



Ok, for those that thought I was imagining the whole thing....

Good thing I ordered 4 different sized bearings. I owe thanks to Hughlysses for pointing out some of the things I needed to make this swap. You have to size the pilot bearing shaft to the race. I measured both and went by the chart which ones are which. I ordered a green, the smallest, then White/gray, blue and red in ascending sizes. I measured the races, conferred with the chart and couldn't make heads or tails of it. My measurement was smaller than the chart showed, so I just started with the smallest bearing, the green one. Slipped it on and felt for play, it had a bit. Next up, the white/gray one, although it seemed like a tight fit in the beginning, it felt really nice and smooth once it fell into place. I didn't think I needed to go any further with it, I didn't want to get the crank stuck. Time to reassemble the beast.





Wonders of the internet that took only a couple seconds! I don't know why everyone complains these things take so long.

I did however, notice I was having trouble reinstalling the chain and primary.



The shaft measured at 30.80mm and the hole measured at 24.34mm



I should have thought about it and figured the '08 crank is a larger diameter than the old one. Guess a new primary gear is in order, maybe time for that XB9 mod? Or will I run into even more trouble. Guess another note to ASB.

Hopefully no one else has to go through this, but if they do, I'm more than happy to help.

I forgot to mention a really important part. When you pull the cases apart, the detent will swing down and into the way. You have to remove, what I believe, is the neutral switch and use a screwdriver to get the detent out of the way. The spring is really strong and I recommend using a stout phillips to move it so the case can set down properly. I hope I got it right!



The little harness just pops off and use a thin wall socket and take it off. Don't forget the metal gasket. This will give you access to the detent and move it. Now I realize the large nut would have to have been removed to do this step or I would have never realized the switch was there.

I have new rings and used the Pine-sol treatment on the pistons. I'm not real anal about cleaning it, just knocked off most of the carbon. I did one at a time since I had to remove the wrist pin and did not want to mix them up, way too easy for me.



Just overnight soaking.

I just waiting for a couple more gaskets and the XB9 primary I scored and work will continue. Hope to have it running in a week or two. It's raining this week anyway.

They sorta still exist, but I plan on honing them anyway.

You'll have to let us know what you think about the xb9 primary when you're all done.
