Tearing it down is easy, putting it back together is another thing. Per the previous post its just alot of time. What I found to be a big help, especially when it might be some time before you start the assembly, is to take lots of digital pics as you are disassembling. I also placed all the hardware in ziploc bags and labeled it. You think you will remember where everything goes and how cables and lines are routed but you wont remember. The pics and the ziplocs are a big help.

Yes, I've done it. My 2004 VROD used to be silver now its black.

Half way down the page on this link.

Its a lot easier if it hasn't been on fire as you will know where the parts will go.

Note: The only problem you may have is if the pivot shaft is seized. The rest is just a Mechano set. Take photos as a record as you dismantle the bike and everything should be straight forward if you're handy with spanners.

Depends on how fast/often you need to drink...I can tear one down in 4 hours but I don't stop (maybe a sip of iced tea occassionally).

It's easy my best time for a take down is under three hours and putting it back together in under six hours. Bag and tag everything and takeing pictures the first time helps in re-assembly.

I did this years ago to a Honda 900. Took all of half a day to pull it down in big chunks. But label everything you remove, saves lots of time on reassembly. Just got it all together and got transferred overseas! My buddy ended up with it!
