Pulling motor out 06 GSXR 1000

How hard is it and do I need special tools? Is it going to take 4 or 5 hours or this all week for this chump? I know how to take rad and header system off. I also can pull the tank off. I have never tried to dismantle a bike. I am especially good at destroying bikes, not dismantling them. I'm unfamiliar with throttle bodies and the like. Easier to take the cables off at the handlebars or should i disconnect when throttles off? I have a chance to ship my bike back for free if I can disassemble the motor from the frame. I will have to pay a fair amount to ship entire bike. The parts alone are worth several thousand. Thanks for the input.

take the throttle quadrant off the bike first with cables attached, then

remove the rad and oil cooler and drain the sump. at this point you would have dropped the exhaust and removed the airbox. disconnect all the wiring connectors and the battery cables don't forget the ground strap. next remove the clutch slave cylinder or if it uses a cable clutch remove the cable from the actuator next remove the final drive cover to expose the chain and sproket losen the rear wheel and push it forward to slacken the chain now remove the chain from both sprokets remove the shifter lever actuator from the transmission shifter shaft . at this point block up the engine with wood or a small floor jack to sopport the weight of the egine then start removing the motor mount bolts. make sure you mark everything as to where it goes and take pictures of it as you take it apart for visual reference.

being organized both physically and mentaly in this kind of job is the secret. as for tools a basic metric kit should suffice and a decent philips screwdriver and if the bike gets stubborn like a harley or an old ford then a 10lb sledge might be in order

Those are alot of big fancy words to me. I thought you could keep the oil cooler on the bike when removing. The battery flew off the bike when I fell off, so thats easy.haha. It's a cable clutch I believe. Can I not just leave the chain on the front sprocket, or is that where the clutch cable goes as well? Are the engine bolts easily accessible? Bike is still in Barcelona for a few days. I'm getting a quote on removal from a shop here in Madrid tomorrow. This bike is the James Dean of Bikes. The nastalgia is there for me. Three different countries custom charges? Priceless. BTW, its a race bike, not street trim
