1198 Piston Blowout.

I suspended the frame just forward of the Tail Cover, front wheel on the stand which then stabalises everything. Then I took the rear wheel off, then it was easy to refit the swing arm.
BTW...I'm just finishing a rebuild of the 1198 engine after having the timing belt slip .... with a passenger and doing 160kph... broke the top half of horizontal piston off and shatered the rings into a shrapnel, bent the timing lay shaft. Vertical learning curve.
While I was at it I replaced the clutch, new timing belts... doh! Complete service, checked and set the valve clearance.... oh... and a new screw on the side stand!
Dealer price quoted 7,000... cost me all up just over 2,000
I have developed some respect for these magnificent machines.
Thanks for all the helpful posts.
