    Look at download manual or get a Clymers Manual, You tube the jobe vids, lincs on here and decide if you are capable of the job. Not that hard to do.

    Although the manual says that you need this and that and special tools, heat/cold and a soft faced hammer will get the job done.

    Watch a few vids on the matter KOR has an excellent one, just search YouTube.

    If you get bamboozled we are here to assist.

    The case will not just "pop" off. You'll need a puller as the end of the crank is a press fit into the bearing. I guess anything is possible and you may be able to remove the left case without disturbing any of the internals. The hard part is going to be putting it back together. If you have to go into it that far, go all the way and do it right. Change seals, gaskets, clean and inspect everything, and have no worries. I see it every day. People try to save a couple of bucks and end up spending twice as much as they would have if they would have just done it right the first time. Perfect example:
    Customer: Can you fix my cylinder?

    Me: Sure.

    Customer: How much?

    Me: $230 to re-plate it.
    You should do the bottom end while it's down.

    Customer: how much is that?

    Me: $500 - $800

    Customer: No thanks. It "looks" fine.


    Me: The cylinder is done.

    Customer: I just installed the cylinder. The bike ran great for 2 minutes and then the engine just stopped. I pulled the cylinder off and the head is all pitted up and my new cylinder is ruined. The connecting rod is broken and I have a huge hole in the bottom of my case. How much is this going to cost this time.

    Me: The same thing I told you it would cost the last time but add another $800 for cases and a new crankshaft.

    People get lucky at times. I don't see this as being one of those times.

    If you just took it for 1 ride and the chain came off, I would tell the owner to fix it himself. It's not YOUR fault the chain came off. If he was riding it, the same thing would have happened. Now, if you had it for a month, rode it every day and never inspected the chain, then yeah, you need to cover the repair.

    In your case, it is not for the faint hearted.

    If the case is broken, it will have to be replaced, and I feel sure that the job may be beyond your capabilities.

    Take Kens advice and have it done professionally.

    You may be able to save money if you do not replace the internals.

    Have a chat to the owner, tell him what happened, offer to pay for the case replacement and labour. Give him the option of paying for replacement internals.
