In another small fit of progress, some more of the wiring is disconnected, and the headlight shell is now ready for removal. At the rear of the bike, I finally get around to removing the swingarm using the dual nut method since I do not have the BMW pin tool. Pretty easy work, and the bike looks like some progress has taken place despite just an hour of work while watching the F1 finale in Brazil. Quite the irony really, watching the pinnacle of technology applied to motorsport while wrenching on a design largely unchanged since 1923 !!
