Easiest engine removal method?

Is there a preferred/suggested way to remove the engine? Or is what's in the manual pretty much it? I need to remove my heads and god knows what else I'll find while I'm in there.


I saw this one on youtube. It seems like this would rid me of the need to purchase an engine stand and an engine hoist.

From what sort of vehicle?
Fireblades you just put a crate or something under the engine and remove the bike from the engine.
I have never used an engine stand or a hoist for any motorcycle engine, and rarely for car engines. Even my old CB1100F engine only weighed 82kg, Blade engines are barely over 60kg, less if you strip parts off first, like the starter motor, alternator and clutch if you think you're going to struggle with the weight.
I just helped a mate pull out a GSX1100 engine last Sunday, and helped lift the new one out of his car - with a broken right shoulder.
By "heads" do you mean a V-engine of some kind?

Re: Easiest engine removal method?

This is what I did. Was fairly straightforward if you follow my article and the manual. It went back together maybe even a bit easier than taking her apart..

Have fun!

Re: Easiest engine removal method?

This is how I got my 93 motor out by myself, no vid, just pics. Hanging the frame vs. using the rear stand is a good option as well. I used the tie downs you see to lower the front of the engine. It took some finagling to get the rear portion undone, but once it was loose I was able to then lift the frame up via tie downs and slide the motor out to the left as shown in the last pic. Good luck however you get it out.

Re: Easiest engine removal method?

I just finished moving in to my new place over the weekend. I'll probably get cracking on this come Saturday.

I'll probably do something similar to you Ian.
