    Drain the oil for the right side, might need a new gasket there. On the left the magnetism can make to forward cover seem stuck. You have to remove the shift linkage for the sprocket cover. It help to take the footpegs off on both sides.
    That's about all I can think of.

    Aircraft paint remover does the clear coat removal pretty quick, just make sure to protect any thing you don't want stripped.
    If you can't get aircraft stripper, some heavy duty paint remover from Ace hardware will do the trick. It takes a bit longer but you still need to still need to either remove the cases or cover everything you don't want stripped.

    Acutually Im north 4 hours in Weatherford. Would love to ride the hill country down there though. Been a while since I've been to San Antoin. Miss that place. Would make for a nice ride.

    I didn't get another windshield yet. I had tried the hand shields already and they were not so great. The positioning of them did not block the wind as I had anticipated, so I took them off.

    I'll email what my book says on the forks.

    What I did rather than clamp the fork in a vice is lower it out of the upper pinch bolt and tightened what would have been in the upper triple tree in to the lower tree. That way I could loose the cap easily and control the spring.

    If you can lift the front end, its really best to remove the forks. Taking the cap off will release the spring and pulling that spring out will drip a bunch of fork oil. I took my spring out over the drain pan. I already had the cap off just taking the spring oit was messy. I wiped down the spring with paper towel. From there I just turned over the fork and pumped the slider up and down a few times to get the most fork oil out.
    Its the est way to get the fork oil out of all the passages. Even drain holes don't get that much fork oil out.From there it was just putting in the measured amount of fresk oil and reassembly. I then repeated the process for the other fork.

    Glad to see you back here, my friend!
    I don't blame you in the least for preferring home. Its much easier to rest easy at home.
    I've got the bell mounted. It looks good! I can't thank you enough.
