That was my go to for a while, until I couldn't get the studs out of the T500 upper cases.

There's something to be said for correct tools. Stud extractors work SO well. It could have broken off flush with end of the fork.  :-X

My stud extractor cost $10.  That thing is at least an inch above the surface.  No need for specialized tools.




I mentioned that first, but, if you intend to re-use studs it isn't the best thing to use

I typically don't reuse broken studs.  Also, the FSM and Haynes manuals for the F650 I built tell you to use pliers to remove the studs so you can get the head and cylinder off the bottom end during a rebuild.

I've had to do a few crankcase replacements over the years, cases don't generally come with studs so you have to swap them over. One of the techs did a Kawasaki 600 using 'pliers/vice grips' method. He was a bit dumb, when the first stud snapped at 18ft/lbs, he went around the rest of the head and broke all the others
 Cost him a bunch of time and money.

I ended up taking the lower down to the auto-repair department - it took a vice and a couple of guys to get that thing out of there. Got the new studs (went ahead and ordered four) in over the weekend and was able to get things back on track.

I got some work done over the weekend - but nothing went as smoothly as I had hoped.






I got to clean this mess up when my oil drain pan couldn't keep up with the flow from my truck.



I was able to drop the engine back in without scratching my new paint or breaking my back.





Took some negotiating with my brake pedal to create some clearance between it and the 2-into-1 Mac exhaust I am mounting. I used a small propane torch to heat it up a bit, threw it into my vice and was able to get just enough room to keep it from hitting the pipes when I release the pedal.

I repainted the brake pedal using some black caliper paint. I let it sit for a few hours and then baked it for a little over an hour with my front calipers that I had painted earlier in the week. The paint will probably flake off sitting that close to the exhaust. I did get my front brake back together, and reinstalled the front fender with out scratching the paint on my forks.

You'll be fine with the paint near the exhaust. I used spray can epoxy paint within 1/2" of the headers on my XL with 0 issues.

are you missing the return stop for the rear brake pedal or was there just not enough adjustment to keep it from hitting?
