Anyone out there ever have to do this to their machine? I've read the manual, but as usual, it only gives the bare minimum of instructions. Was hoping someone had done it before and could walk me through the procedure before I begin. It's on an 03 WR450. I need to get it off so I can try to get the oil line bolt hole fixed right, and make sure there are no little pieces of metal in the bottom of the engine that might get up into the tranny or worse. Funny- I thought getting a newer bike would give me fewer problems- but this thing's been nothing but a pain in the a$$ since the get-go. Maybe I shoulda just stuck with the old CR. Anyways- let me know if you guys have any ideas- there's gotta be someone on this forum that's done more to their bike than put stickers on it and new handlebars. THanks!
