How hard is it and do I need special tools? Is it going to take 4 or 5 hours or this all week for this chump? I know how to take rad and header system off. I also can pull the tank off. I have never tried to dismantle a bike. I am especially good at destroying bikes, not dismantling them. I'm unfamiliar with throttle bodies and the like. Easier to take the cables off at the handlebars or should i disconnect when throttles off? I have a chance to ship my bike back for free if I can disassemble the motor from the frame. I will have to pay a fair amount to ship entire bike. The parts alone are worth several thousand. Thanks for the input.
