Splitting the case isn't a big deal.
Before I had accident an back got messed up I could do a runner to crank out and back to runner in less than 12hrs (about 6~7 yrs ago  :( )

Thanks PJ. I've been doing a decent amount of reading up on it (enough that my fiance is sick of me reading about "motorcycle stuff") and the more I learn the easier it seems. I'm being sure to be extra organized as well. I have pictures and everything I've taken off so far is in marked ziploc bags. I'm eager to get the oil filter wrench so I can get back to it!

I'm going to make sure to check everything I can while I have it open. I did check my oil filter and didn't see much metal in there, so that's good I guess! Any certain things I should give a good look over while I have it apart? I was thinking of:
  • checking the clutch disc wear
  • give the case a good cleaning, because I'm sure there is a good bit of metal floating around in there.
  • upgrade to a CJ360 oil pickup
  • drill holes in the clutch center. Is that something I need a drill press for or can I just put it in a bench vise and do with a hand drill?
  • make sure nothing else looks extra worn

When you split the case, make one of these:



Makes it easy to keep track of which bolt goes where and you won't have to think about it later.

Well, I've been going back and forth for the past year about if I want to do a full resto-mod or just tackle things bit by bit. Since I have the engine out, I decided I want to go for it! Some words of wisdom from a friend helped me make the decision as well. So today I stripped the entire bike down to the frame. I bagged everything small and layed out the rest. The only thing I didnt remove was the triple-tree. I want to do a little reading up on that first because I know there are bearings in there and I want to make sure I do it right. I have never stripped anything like this down so far so I must say this was EXTREMELY satisfying. I was very meticulous with labeling wire connections and parts so I feel confident I'll be able to get it back together without too much trouble. I'm sure a couple things will pop up though.  ::)

I also made progress on the engine. I got all the left side bits off. that includes covers, sprocket, and stator rotor. I don't have an electric start so all the bits for that were already gone. Its amazing how simple the left case is when all that electric starter junk is out.  ;D

You can get new tapered steering stem bearings to replace the old steel ball/race setup. www.allballsracing.com

If you don't want to go that route, be very careful when removing the stem not to lose any of the steel balls, the bottom ones will tend to fall out when you drop the lower triple.

Lots of great info in this post:

Thanks adventurco! I see they have wheel bearings there as well. would they be a good company to get all of that from? (steering stem bearings, front wheel bearings, and rear wheel bearings)

Yeah, I got everything from there. Shop around, I think I found cheaper prices on Amazon.

I wouldn't bother with the clutch discs, just fit heavy duty springs and it will be better than stock
Also do the clutch hub oil hole mods while it's apart to increase oil flow through clutch, helps keep it cooler and cleaner (although oil gets dirty quicker but centrifugal filter will separate il from clutch 'dust')
