I'm not to sure how far I'll be taking this job, but it has been inspired by the fact that the bike wont slip into second gear. Note that the last person who rode it dropped it a couple of times after releaving me of its presence. Since I've NEVER pulled a car or bike apart before beyond changing the oil filter (besides my remote control car as a kid), I thought I may post my progress to make sure I'm not f@#%ing things up! My goal now is to remove the engine and poke around to get a good idea of whats going on, but I've been thwarted by the back wheel... I'm sure I'll get it off in due time. Tell the truth when I started I had no idea that removing the back wheel would come into it. Also kinda curious if anybody knows the best ways to be desposing of coolant and old oil. Right now It's just siting in my garage in old ice cream containers :roll:.
