Hi, just wanted to know how difficult it would be to remove the trellis frame so I can get it resprayed? Would I need a motor stand whilst the trellis frame is out? It be fairings will obviously be stripped totally. Just wanted to know the difficulty of this task?

You will need a way to support the motor. I built a stand with lumber to do mine. You will also need the steering steam tool to remove it. Other than that I think it is only standard metric tools and you are good to go. All of this is based off of the Pre 2010 F4 models. If you have a newer bike I am not sure but would think it would be close.

very similar on the 2010+ F4, if i recall there is a slight different in the way the frame plates go on and off. I needed to make a driver to push through a spool on one of them. Its been a few years but its not terribly difficult either way.

there are mounting points on the rear of the frame that stick due to corrosion so just be careful when removing the frame plates

Sorry I should have specified that it’s for an F3 800. In order what needs to be removed? Can I remove the trellis frame without removing the frame plates and subframe or do I need to remove everything in order to remove the trellis, therefore meaning that I’d need to make a stand for the motor?
Or should I leave to job to a customs shop and pay them to do it or would that end up costing me a lot in labour hours?

1st get a bunch of cardboard boxes and bubble wrap.......
As Andrew said you can make a simple wooden engine stand
As you remove parts wrap them and put them in boxes......you'll thank me later:wink2:
OK......my Bodis cans and mid pipe are behind me in my living room and the the head pipes
are hanging from the ceiling in the garage.......but you get what I mean.....
Off the bike accidents happen
