    just a quick question on a engine removal, any suggestions on the easiest way to pull my motor out of my 2006 Classic? I'm hoping someone out there has performed this operation and I would appreciate any advice or suggestions...thanks

    did you have any issues with the clutch cable being in the way? The removal procedures don't mention removing it..

    SUPPORT the front of the tranny and the back of the engine BEFORE loosening the four bolts connecting the two. Disconnect the neg. cable from battery. Take the tank OFF. Turnbuckle. Throttle cables. Pipes. Drain the engine oil. Mark and disconnect the sensor wires.

    TQ

    There is a small notch between the block and trans cases behind the primary. It's for a pry bar to Gently separate the cases. Like TQ said support trans.

    That is a good idea. I would also get some zip lock bagges and but your bolts in them and label where they went. Once you get a pile of bolts its hard to remember where they all went...:small3d012:
