its easy for the most part. i did have a bit of a hard time getting the belt to seat into the pulley. i had to tap it in using a hammer handle. you my as well change you springs and weights wile your in there and clean it.

i didnt replace the seal, but i think its not a bad idea to change it. as far as springs and weights, thats what comes in a cluch kit.

they told me i could have problems with altitude, and if i put a new pipe on that increased power. did you have any of these problems. They also said that I would need the 79 dollar tool to put this on. did you buy this, and if not how did you get yours on? thanks

as far as altitude i am 80 feet above sea level so no problem. i have the stock pipe. i didnt buy the 79 dollar tool, but it would have made the job easyer. i cant remember exactly how i did it, but i do remember i used a vice, a c-clamp and an extra set of hands.
