8. Remove the 14 bolts that hold the clutch cover. Here is the cover after being removed. There are 7 long bolts and 7 shorter bolts. The picture shows the cover with the 7 long bolts in place. The remaining 7 holes are where the shorter bolts go.

8.1 Here is the cover with the hose holders on the left side in place. The ones on the right side are not shown because it is easier to leave them hanging on the hoses on the bike.
