I’m not 100% but my bike is apart right now for the second time and I’m gonna say no. But even if you could/can it would not even be close to worth it. It’s so easy to take the frame off the motor it would be 10 times harder to try to do with it still attached to the frame

I agree, it just seems a bit of bodge to do it in situ, it would be much better to remove and do the work properly on a bench.

And, if you're so inclined, you can then do a meticulous clean of both engine and frame!

Re: Head Removal in frame

Thanks for the replyís. The head will come out with the engine in the frame. The came chain guides have to be taken loose and removed. That clears the head to be carefully removed through the front (of course all the cooling has been removed). Remove the foam that is stuck to the frame on each side of the head. The bolts that are on the outside of the cam chain tunnel require a little thought to remove especially the rear one. Bottom line is take your time and go slow. Upon reinstalling the head go in reverse. All bolts can be reached for proper torquing down.
