Great to hear Jimmy! Pop me a PM with your email address and I'll send you the R service manual. I say just pull the cables, take off the engine mounts and the engine will literally fall out below. I had to drop my R motor from my S to pull off the rear exhaust stubby. Once everything is clear you can literally block the engine and lift the whole dang bike off it!Finaly finished treatment; my brain seems to be working again, and now have the energy to work on the TLR, though I am 20kg's lighter than I was 6 months ago:dowhat
I see we don't have the 'File Vault' any more. Can anyone help me get hold of the TLR workshop manual - I have one for the S, but not the R.
My TLS has started to whine in 2nd gear - a bit like the diff whine you get in old HQ Holdens - not loud, but noticeable. So i have decided to throw the engine from the R (which has only done 30 000k's, to my S's 70 000) in it while I do the cosmetic work on the R - this will keep me on the road while I sort out the gearbox.
I have stripped the R down (taking photo's so I can put it back together one day:devious) and am almost ready to drop the engine out. Is it better to remove the TB's before I drop the engine, as I will be using the S gear on it; or should I disconnect the cables and remove the TB's later? And do I unbolt the TB's boots-and-all from the engine, or undo the clamps and slide the TB's off, leaving the boots in place?
Any help, tips and advice will be greatly appreciated:cheers
Glad to hear you are doing better. :cheers
