so I tried it with the rear wheel..set the engine up, and balanced engine etc....

it was a real prick...mind you i didnt have a jack to lift engine...so then I took the back wheel off...

then was able to pick the bike up and lower it over the engine...
was able to lift thru and pick up the engine, and at same time push the lower bolt through the bottom section, and it was in...

all those bits of timber and bars were used to rest it and balance it...

not the best way, but was on my own, and wasnt going to let it beat me...
then once that was in, was able to jack the engine up with a car jack under the oil filter, and it aligned straight in...


im sure others will have had better ways, but it worked, engine hanger thingys on, ignition coils in ....fk it..that was it..i was sweaty like a pig..nice 26 degrees here....
and just in case...yes the exhaust tip was put in before rigging it up...didnt forget that....read chuck did his, got it all in, and then forget the pipe..had to take it all out again...no way can you do it up when engine is in there...

What a coincidence, Mr Moyston. I was just looking at sticking my motor back in and the method I was thinking of was exactly like you've done there. Stick in the lower bolt and use it as a pivot to lift the motor into place. Actually with the front end off I reckon the frame will just drop onto the motor then I can use the stands to jack the whole lot back up again.

I'll just hang the frame on the motor then pick the whole lot up back onto the stands.

A block and tackle would be nice but the lollypop stick joists in my garage probably wouldn't take the weight.

The builder who worked on my house before bought it was head of the guild of master bodgers. If there was a way to screw up any job he'd find it and improve on it.
Things like he plumbed the extension they built onto the house with high pressure pipe when it isn't a high pressure water system. No two light switches work the same way and every light fitting uses a different type of bulb. I mean it takes effort to get things as wrong as he did.

I think what I'm going to do with my motor is set it on a slightly raise platform. I'll leave the front end on and just lift the frame over the motor. That should make it easier to get the front bolts in as I won't have so far to list the motor. Once that's done I can just pick up the back end of the frame and drop it back on the axle stands that its sitting on now. Reassemble the swing arm, shock etc and jobs a good 'un. I can still lift the motor on my own.

I've probably got a couple of years left before the arthritis stops me doing that. :laugh

May have to change my sig soon though. I'm not going to surprise anyone with my speed these days. My joints sound like a bowl of rice krispies. :puke

I found that the front head has to be tilted towards the front tyre, as you just cant lower it on top of the motor....I had it tilted a little bit forward and was able to lift with the use of the rear exhaust. Once you get that in the rear frame hole, it sort of balances..so u can rest and admire what you have done, while straightening your back out....

ok, tried picking up all the electrical cables and unravel the fkn bag of spaghetti. Was glad that I taped each cord as had a basic understanding of were what went and which connected to what...
so kick stand on and came across that speedo sensor...not good...

i forgot to take pics of all the wiring, but it makes sense when u put it all together, then throw on the throttle bodies...as most connect to that...
getting them on, was careful not to pinch pull apart some hard to get at hose , wire etc...then pushed em ok...

then I reminded myself of the ever impending electric wiring of doom on the rmx that has to be done....
