    Hello everyone,

    Has anyone managed to remove/install the camshaft with the engine in the frame? Just gave it a shot with no luck. Was very close to getting the cam out but was just not happening. Hoping someone out there has found a trick that I didn't. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Edit:

    Figured it out. Unbolted the front engine stay and the removed the long bolt under the engine by the foot rests. Used a car jack to push the engine up and back a little (engine swivels on the swing arm). This gave me the little bit of extra room I needed to remove the cam through the trellis. :1drink
