Great post!

Maybe this should be in the FAQ section for all of the new folks.

Thanks again!

Great post. The only thing I did different is that I didn't take the gas tank off. Just the straps. Then I lifted it and slid the throttle cable out from under it. Might save a little time.

Yep, I say this puppy ought to be in the FAQ as well. Nice post Zingnut! Very detailed....
