Be sure to clean the wire harness above the head before removal or wrap a towel around it to prevent dirt from falling off and into the top of the motor!!!

A tip when removing the top motor mount:
Don't try to unscrew the allen-head screw, instead unscrew the 12mm nut on the other side while just holding the screw. If that was what you did then I apology for being silly.

you do not have to remove the radiators, but you might have to take out the radiator mounting bolts and move the radiators.. also, do not forget about the compression lever if you do have to pull the cams to adjust your valves.. good luck onthe engine mounting brace, you will not be able to adjust until you get that sucker off.. Hmmm , sounds like a good time to buy some anti-seize..
