This is for those wondering how the install goes with the 2007 side case (with the oil squirter) onto your running, motor in the frame, 04-06 YFZ. I finished the whole job over a 2 day period. I took my sweet azz time spending only a couple hours both days. But there is no reason you cannot wrap it up entirely in an afternoon.
This is going to take about 8 or 9 posts so give me about a half hour to get it all up.
I got my kit from Bob @ Magnolia. Apparently I was the first to order the kit so he did not really have any technical info about the kit, nor could he provide any installation tips......which was understandable.
To the dirt........
Out of the ordinary tools needed:
1-3/16(??) socket.......clutch basket nut removal
The rest were basic wrenches, sockets, pliers, screwdrivers, ect.
Start by removing your foot peg and rear brake lever. Next remove your oil filter cover and old filter. Save the 3 o-rings behind the filter because you are going to reuse them. Now drain both your coolant and oil (case & res). Next remove the water pump cover and impellar. Again, save the o-ring behind the water pump cover because you are going to reuse it. At this point your entire side case should be accessable. Next remove the clutch cover from the case. Then remove the banjo bolt from the top side of the case. Then remove all 8mm bolts from the outer edge of the case and pull it off. Don't be affraid to give it a nice heathly pull either. Also, be careful removing the oil line at the bottom of the case as you are going to reuse the o-ring and sleeve behind it.
