    Excellent Carl - good for you! Don't forget to grab those crush washers and the vaseline (extremely handy) - and then have at it.

    Are you going to be at the Der Dutchman RTE this weekend?

    The harder I work, the luckier I get.

    I'm planning on it! I've been trying to make it to an event for a while! Looking forward to meeting some people.

    Ha. Not yet. It might be a few weeks before I get to it.

    OK - well, I'm sure that you will find it quite manageable but not a great deal of fun. Fortunately, there is not much disassembly of the bike required, not many special tools and nothing too heavy to lift/align or wrestle with.

    Cheers,

    Pete

    Hi Pete,
    THANK YOU for your article. I just finished doing this to my 2006 and with the help of your wisdom it went very well. I have 2 things that I'll add here...(both for what they're worth of course.)
    First, by far the hardest part of this is getting the old gasket off. Definitely took me the most time. If I had it to do again I'd leave the old one in place as it doesn't seal anything anyway. Second, I agree with the person who said to remove the speed sensor (I think)...having it out of the way made the job easier for me.

    Thanks again Pete! I owe you one!

    Great points Mark - I'll edit the article.

    The only wrinkle about leaving gasket on would be if it was "lumpy" and would not allow the CSC to sit nice and flat on the engine case.

    As long it comes off fairly even and smooth I agree that it would be OK to leave the gasket on because as you say, it really does not actually "seal" anything.

    Anyhow glad it worked out for you. It is certainly better than the $1300+ Honda factory method.

    Pete

    Great write up Pete ! Question is what took more time the write up or the actual job !!! Usually let dealer tackle my issues but the amount of description in your write up makes me think I could actually do this with Ray supervising of course.
