I'd like to freshen the frame on my 02 by having it bead blasted and powder coated. Has anyone done the tear-down and re-assembly for this?

I bought mine as a wreck and put it back together. Get a good manual and the parts manual for your year. You're going to need a fair amount of room for the big pile of parts.
Glass beading tends to leave glass in holes, crevices and threads. Tap all of your threaded holes before assembly. Take alot of pictures from different angles. You most likely will not remember how everything came apart.
If you run into a head scratcher, take a breather to get your head back in it. And if all else fails there is 1130cc forum.
Happy wrenching!
