    You realize that it is only 4 nuts (the mirrors) and 2 bolts to remove the front fairing right?

    If you split it like I did, it would probably be easier to do the bearings after it's back together. At least frame connected to engine.
    thats what I am thinking. I red up on the job in the manual. Seems they want you to use a special tool to compress the bearings into the frame head. On the futura you had to bang out the races and pry the bearring off the lower triple. All in all an easy job, but had to pull off way too much shit on the aprilia. If I get the triumph back sooner as opposed to later I may give it a go on a day off.

    I'm impressed.
    Thanks, it was really not as bad as I thought it would be. Given no distractions, and actually knowing where the tools are, I say it's about a 10-12 hour job, not counting the coolant flush or oil change.

    There is, leave it together and rotate the engine in the frame.

  • I thought mine was a bit into it. At least I dont have to put the cams out and in multiple times like the 6th gener's do.
