Question Pulling motor on GSXR

Any tips or suggestions on removing those weird locknut type things that hold the motor onto the frame. That's all i have left to drop the motor.

One is recessed about 3 inches inside the frame. That won't work.

Okay. And are you positive you have to remove it?

You can use a large socket and grind it down to spec

Someone else recommended the socket trick. Guess I'll try that.

Rather than grind your own, check on ebay for a ready made tool. 9 times out of 10, somebody offers one made to fit the exact nut.

I did that changing the clutch out on my truck in high school. Ran perfect for years after that. Sold it to a friend who had it for years. Helped him change the clutch out again years later. Still never found where those bolts went. I swear that they were on the cart before i started lol.

or check autozone or orielys, etc tool rental. You can rent tools for the price of the tool and then get your money back when you return it. Or call pete after you've buggered your threads...

rgr that! 9 times out of 10 the socket snaps after hours of grinding on first try on the nut. Reboot. Try again...

The nuts that require the castle type sockets can be removed with a punch. Its a total and you will mar up. I have pulled my motor a few times. Seems like there is a lower one that needs a large hex shaped socket. A lower ones it seems like. I have pulled mine several times but its been washed from my memory. LOL. I dont have the sockets either. I borrowed a few that were home made. You really should get some one way or another to do this job. Since you have a mill you should get some Harbor Freight sockets and make some
