Leftside Crankcase Cover Installation
Long story short, I had to remove the left side crankcase cover to retrieve a socket. I already ordered a new gasket, but when I tried to temporarily re-install the cover I failed.
My shop manual was of no help.
The bottom of the cover likes to get hung up on the frame, and there's a metal shaft going through some of the gears that doesn't line up with it's female slot on the cover.
This has elevated from frustration to fear, as I'm now worried I will need to remove the engine to re-install this. I know we've got some v-star experts on hand around here (I'm looking at you, metric magic), please give any help you can.
