82' XT550 and if I need to pull the motor to fix the cylinder O-ring.
I, (well, my father) has a 82 XT550 and the cylinder base gasket O-ring is leaking. I was wondering if it is possible to just pull the head/cylinder body and not have to pull the whole motor out of the bike? Being as the frame in part of the oil sump my dad just wants to know if he can get away with it or if the frame will prevent us from getting off the head/cylinder.
Thank you for any help.
