basically your taking the whole bike apart
you wanna take everything off in as big a chunks as possible
take the lowers off
then get the upper, headlight, fairing stay, guage all off in one chunk
take the seats, tail, gastank off.
now it starts getting bike specific because of plugs and wiring
you wanna take the front end off as one unit (forks wheels handle bars brakes and blah blah)
next is the rear get the rwheel off. cut the chain off un bolt the shock and swing arm.
then unbolt all motormount bolts and what ever bolts the exhaust to the frame take the bolts out and pull the frame off the motor

basically anything that doesnt have to get disconnected dont disconnect it. it will save you a bunch of time when you put it back together
for someone who hasnt done it before it might take you a couple of hours to a day to get it apart and the same for assembly

don't forget to add new bearings to your build up, cuz those will have to be removed.

+1 Steering head bearings and swingarm pivot bearings. You will not be able to remove these yourself BTW, so make plans and add time to get a hold of a shop to remove them for you.

depending on what bearings you have, you can remove them yourself and probably even install them yourself.

Give it a shot...don't worry about ruining the bearing. Bearings are rather cheap.

newer bikes usually dont have any frame....or any real damage for that matter when salvaged, just the body work!

isn't that illegal???

and i don't know about lacking "real damage" because it's newer.


I'd say, pull it off, tap your bearings out, drop it off, buy parts while it's getting coated, and get it back for reassembly. That's what I did.
