I'm going to change the piston and timing chain this week and 1st time taking a cylinder and head off (did many two stroke top ends). Do any of you have any tips to make the job easier? I'm guessing the head will be sliding out to one of the sides, and not coming out straight up. I figure that may kind of suck when trying to fish the cam chain up though the head.
I'm assuming I can do i with the radiators on (drained),
Do I have to remove the coil?
Does the fuel injection pop out of the boot like a carb going into the head?
And yes... I have a service manual, and will be looking at that as well.
