I suggested what to do, but you don't want my advice.  LOL.  I'll say it again anyway.  If you remove it, the hardened rubber may crack, so be prepared to buy a replacement.  It's really nuts, but Honda put the same design pickup screen on the CB750.  Either rinse it clean or carefully and slowly pry it off and hope you don't crack the hardened rubber.  The screen is keeping the crap from going back up into the motor, so all the shit is on the side you're looking at.  I've been scraping my screen and rinsing it clean on my CB750, but I'm an idiot who half asses everything because I spend too much money on shitty motorcycles at swap meets.

hahahaha. Ill just spray w penetrant and brush over it w shop vac and call it good.  THANKYOU.

BTW..."Better replace it all. Itís trash".  didn't really answer the question I asked.  LOLOL

Does anyone know,

Can I just pull the screen from the pickup?  OR do I need to pull the complete pickup?

Yea I like thread sealant w teflon its good up to 550 degrees F.  Never hardens up. 

Really just about anything will work to prevent galling.  anti-seize, locktite...etc 

The Stainless and aluminum combo is just the worst possible mix for galling.

That looks stable. BTW, I have had excellent luck with smooth SS threads in aluminum when I give them a couple coats of Neolube (graphite in alcohol) first. Cheap, rough SS threads will screw it up every time.

Sweet! clean and reassemble (correctly) and get it back in the frame.

Fresh clutch discs, plates and springs going in first.  New ignition points plate.
Clean pickup screen and new filter, drive sprocket, fresh little harness for the stator and field coils
Re-torque head bolts and adjust valves.     :)

Second.  A great bike.
