I absolutley agree with Ed! It takes 5 minutes to remove the dizzy's.
I use a 1/4" 8mm socket/ratchet setup with a small extension to remove the cap bolts. &
a 10mm 1/4" setup to remove the dizzy's.
I'de all so recomend removing the airfilter setup to gaine more room. & removale of the airbox is simple,
Two 10mm bolts hold the tubes,
I like to remove the strut brace. four 13mm bolts.
I then like to remove the rubber seal & raine diverter from the front chanell... that will give you a straight shot with a phillips screwdriver to remove the three screws @ the back of the top cover.
A flate blade screwdriver will remove the four screws/cap nuts that hold the top cover down.
You may be able to have enough room W/O removing the lower air filter box... but it's two 10mm nuts.
All so when putting the dizzy's back on you'll notice a notch @ the back of the dizzy. Make sure you refrence how they came apart cause the back of the Exhaust cam is notched as well & you do not wanna get the dizzy/rotor 180deg out.
The best way to do it I suppose is to put the motor @ TDC. Then there would be no way to mess it up... not that there is a way to mess up.
