I like their layout with the condensers right there with the points. For one thing, it reminds you that the condensers are important. The main thing is eliminating long runs and poor connections to them. A weakness on the GL1000s. Now that you have spent the time to prepare this area properly, future problems are minimised. Just your post on this should be a newby sticky.

If you think you want to remove these 4 bastards to free the oil pan separator.

You'd better pack a lunch and be ready for massive disappointment.

By some miracle of the God "Honda", along w every trick I know, I was able to get ALL 4 out intact.

I have no idea how this happened other than a damned high quality set of left hand drill bits, easy outs, sweat, cussing and patience. 

Im quitting for the night.  As I dont want to press my luck any further.

When all four popped free, it sounded like the crack of a .22 short.   :o

Just a quickie up-skirt shot.

Makes for comfy removal and cleaning of the oil pan gasket.

Neat.

What colour paint are you planning to use?
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
Sr250, Gs750, Z50A, XV1100, A10, Z160A.
