If you are powder coating the frame than just take the whole front off as an assembly. Either way it's nothing to fear super easy. You can tear a bike down taking your time and being organized in a couple hours.

I did it on my yz and banshee. It's easy. Hardest part is remember how to put it back together ;)


I also took my swing arm and forks off as an assembly.

Just the frame, not that much work really. I'm getting my swing arm and linkage done on my kx and only reason it's a PITA is removing/replacing the bearing in them

Just look at the manual and you will see how it's all put together. I used an impact gun to speed things up. The worst part is it's just tedious. Nothing is hard with these bikes, it just takes time. The next time you do it, it will be easier/quicker to do.
