about a month ago i picked up an r50/5 from a fairly local advrider. he'd picked it up as part of a package deal from a barn in florida. it came complete with bird droppings, some hay in the starter cavity, and some twine holding up the centerstand. i've been wanting a /5 for years and this one seemed like a good candidate to fix up and make what it something fun without having to worry about ruining a stock beauty. so far i've been tearing it down and cleaning a great deal. someone along the way painted the cases and i've bee stripping them. lucky for me it was a crap spray job. it looks like they got bored one day and lazily walked around and sprayed what was convenient. 1 of 3 giving me a hand with the initial wash: initial night's work: one of the problem areas. i'll need a new bucket and switch: initial clean of the front cover: as it sits, the motor is out of the frame and the wiring is off the bike. if anyone has any tips on removing a stripped bolt on the compression ring for the clutch it would be most helpful. number 5 here: the early /5 bolts are flat heads. 5 loosened but the last is not budging. i loosened them 1 at a time and then retightened.
