The End

tjs' trick worked. Ragged and zip-tied it to the bar for a couple days, and clutch action is fine now, no pulling with the clutch lever in. Engine sounds fine. I'll have to take it for a shakedown run, spin it the eff up and see if anything in the driveline detonates.

So, thoughts after doing this for the first time:

- Previously I've changed fluids and the odd sensor or two, mounted system cases, stuff like that, but never dug in this deep into a bike.

- I found that I really enjoyed working with the torque wrenches. The Home Depot Husky brand inch-pound unit was great for the small stuff, and the 20-110 ft.-lb. unit good for the rest. For many of the fasteners, the manual's torque settings were in fact lighter than what I would have guessed, had I been doing it by hand feel. So I guess I learned something about fasteners and threads, and that my natural instinct is to overtorque.

- Hoses: meh. Not much fun.

- What was the total spend? From the 4/15/17 tow truck to the 6/2/18 parts run to Montgomeryville Cycle: just under $3,100.00 in parts, supplies and necessary tools. A couple of jobs I postponed, to do in the upcoming winter off-season: fuel line quick disconnects; replacement brake hoses.

- I no longer trust the bike, of course. It'll have to earn back my trust, on progressively longer rides.

- Thanks again to everyone here for advice and support. See you on the road.

Took me about a week or two to trust the bike, first time I tore it down to the studs. Second time, only took me a few days to lose the anxiety. Donít worry, youíll stop tiptoeing around her in no time.

Congratulations! Job super well done!
