The hole is due to me getting in a rush and looking routinely for obstructions.,.as I lowered the motor I didn't see part of the frame and forced the engine down.. But oh well that's an easy fix hopefully. My intentions are to pull the heads off and check the rings all the bearings.

You've had detailed first hand advice, ignored all of it, cant read or reply to posts properly, removed an engine you don't know needed it? said you can remember where everything goes back! said you have mech experience yet and cant figure how to remove a simple head! and have broke the engine already! still want to remove parts that are unnecessary and to cap it off, it turns out you haven't even downloaded a free manual????
So I'm well out of this one. Watch this topic grow to 100+ pages.

I do have a manual, you don't have to be a ****ing prick dude! Since you can't read I've never messed with a motorcycle engine. If you don't like the simple fact that I like to ask questions then get the **** off my thread. Move around clown!

Well... BHP has a point about you breaking the engine, which is still a complete mystery to me. I've slammed it down on the workbench a couple times, but never thought you could actually shatter one. Was it cold outside? Would love more info on what happened exactly. You do have my sympathy though. I know it must have been painful to see.

As far as getting help on here dismantling the engine goes, there's really not too many members (including myself) who have actually torn one down for repair work. This why you hear "download the service manual" so much. And to be honest, the TL engine is built to such quality that it rarely suffers mechanical failure, which is why we strongly urged you to check everything before ripping it apart.

But, because you are tearing it apart, this is why I said to take tons of images and video. Not just for reassembly, but also to help others in the future. Few months down the road and you may see someone (maybe me) asking how to remove the xyz on the engine and repair xyz. And if and when that day comes you'll be able to help 🙂



Regarding the heads themselves, I believe there's only those two bolts in the front and two in the back that hold them on there. I've never done it myself mind you, but that's all I saw when I had the engine out. Seemed pretty straightforward.

Thanks man I do appreciate what you have done. I am half way through the build. Its really not that bad. Pretty simple actually. I've got all the head studs removed and what not and about to pull it apart. I've been taking g my time on it not really rushing.. We had a major flood here in southeast Texas.. But the motor survived. And the situation on that housing I didn't realize there were two ears that protrude from the frame that the kick stand mounted to. And I didn't use the Manuel to remove from frame so I kinda forced it down a little to much... Didn't realize what happened till I got it out and up on the cement to get a good cleaning. But I found a replacement for 12 bucks so all good on that note.

so you rock up new on a forum with a sob story, have detailed real world advice from a long term member taking time out to do YOU a favour who also has in fact, just rebuilt the engine! You either ignore or royally screw up in one form or another, Get mildly criticized then show your true style by hurling expletives at them (from a nice safe 4000 miles away)

The real point is, your abusive response is stepping over the line and not what this forum is about. Clearly, you've demonstrated you don't deserve help. I Advise others to rethink too? Will contact the admin.

But Listen, as my final post, I know a TL is more complicated than a stolen pit bike!! but "when in a hole, stop digging" right?. As, (so you say) you do have a manual, yet even with it, YOU not me, cant read how or worse, even apparently AFTER reading it, STILL cant figure out how to remove some blindingly obvious nuts and bolts on the simplest head short of a two stroke I've ever worked on! ... remind me who's the dummy again?

Its okay my man. Your right my bad. I was a little salty. I apologize. I respect the guys who have given me their input. I admire it honestly. And to be completely honest when I seen the manuel and it said TL1000s I went no farther. But little did I know its just about if not the same thing. And I also didn't know that the book described in detail how to completely disassemble the complete motor. But now I do. I'm just waiting for parts.

Too much worthless drama going on here! We've all had our arrogant moments and fallen flat on our ass, and we've all broken shit from a lack of common sense. Some of us more than others. So enough of the God Damn finger pointing!


Mike, you got images or video footage of the repair you can share? We do love us some technical images around here 🙂
