    You need to remove the small bolt that holds the oil pipe to the head also.
    Leave the mid pipe bolt and pull the cover off about 1/2" to get the room to remove the lower banjo bolt completely from under the exhaust.
    Assemble in reverse of dissasembly.
    Remove the brake lever to have clear access, clean and grease the petal shaft upon re-assembly.

    I am sure you have read about the O ring on the oil tube and the crank end seal.

    That looks like it will work.

    Thanks! I'll have a look at the 3000. That was one of the reasons I didn't bite the bullet yet. I had read some not so good reviews on the 4000.

    Here is the one I got...

    I also have one of those DPCO switches. Hmmm...

    I'm in the middle of installing them and am having an issue with the way I ran the wiring. I have a PM to ThumpnRed. Ah! I've got mail! :lol3

    Thanks for the pics! There isn't much room behind the light is there?

    That would be a necessity.

    We'll eventually wear you down.:D

    Nice work Thumpnred!:clap
    OK, I just got mine wired up just like you have on the diagram.
    The issue I have is...the flasher clicks when the switch is on the "lo" setting and is quiet on the "hi" setting. :huh Shouldn't it be the reverse of what's happening?
    Why is that?

    Don't do it. I analyzed the circuits. :deal The DPCO switch circuit consumes about 4.42 watts per grip on the low setting, which is about 1/2 the heat generated by the Tusk setup on low heat, and 1/4 the heat generated by the high setting. :(: Therefore, I won't be using the DPCO switch. I am going to install an electronic relay.

    The LED dimmer is very nice, and inexpensive; however, it's just too large for me. :huh

    You got it right. :nod The flasher sends power about half the time to the grip heaters when the switch is on the "low" setting. On the "high" setting, the wiring bypasses the flasher and sends full power to the grip heaters. :deal

    I second that!!! That is a tremendous help.

    On high, the grips are getting full power and the blinker relay is not in the circuit. On low power the blinker is in the circuit turning the power on and off to reduce the amount of time the grips are receiving power.

    Yeah, I know what you mean regarding the size...any size is too big for the cockpit on an XR. You have to have a good imagination to find mounting spots.
    I thought you had bolted the switch. I forgot to look when you posted that pic earlier.

    Actually, Thumpnred, looking at your diagram, shouldn't the blinker relay be on the other side of the switch? Between the low pole and the blue line?

    Red got it right. :thumb When the top of the switch rotates to one side, the contacts in the body of the switch connect on the opposite side. :deal

    I told ThumpnRed I was electrically illiterate. I was right! :lol3
    So the resistor/flasher is for the low setting? If so then why is it on the wire that goes to the "hi" side of the switch? That's what is throwing me for a loop.

    Thanks Guys! I couldn't have re-engineered these grip heaters without you! :lol3

    Anyway...I got heated grips!!! :freaky

    I bought one of those for my bicycle to put turn signals on it to "dumb it down" for the masses around me, the two prong relay cost $7.99 at the time, the closest I could find now online is: http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/search/Replacement+Relays+(Universal)/N0381/C0335.oap

    The switch is confusing. Look at the pole that the bottom of the toggle points to.

    OK, I just figured it out. Duh!:lol3

    That flasher I posted is also carried by Advance auto for the same price, $6.99.

    Thank you, Kyo. I found a great flasher for $9.49 at NAPA. It has two terminals, and a service life of 400 hours. :D

    Those relays you posted are excellent values! The highest current draw should be under 3 amps, so those heavy-duty relays are more than capable of handling the current. :D
