Add an electric heat gun to the list, did I miss it above? It works very good on the tiny little cover bolts, so you don’t end up with needless/extra work.
Regarding your cam chain, my motor started making rasping slapping noise when I closed the throttle: the cam chain was hitting the casing due to a broken guide. Are you getting a noise like that ?Hi all, I know I have created many threads and questions over the past few weeks, it's a steep learning curve for me and I really appreciate the expertise and knowledge on this forum
I've decided that before I continue with my CX500 I would like to strip the engine down and examine the cam chain / tensioner / stator before continuing with anything else.
Apart from the flywheel M20 bolt, fan bolt and the clutch nut tool, is there anything else that I will need?
Also, I assume as I am there it would make sense to check the big end bearings? I'm making the assumption that it's ok to take them off, examine and put back on again? Any tips?
