As you can see, the swingarm is off the bike. It was a bit of a hassle because it required a socket to be machined down in order to remove the bolts. I have to thank a friend who helped me out with that. Saved me a bundle of money and/or time. Thanks again.
Machined 27mm socket.
The other hassle was removing the four bolts that hold the drive-shaft to the transmission output. They are pretty inaccessible, and the rubber boot is really in the way.
