Loosen the mounting bolts and pry the engine a little. If you search here you can find many examples. This isn't so much a year issue but a bike to bike issue. Some come right out, others don't. Most people grind the shift shaft clamp so it no longer interferes in the future.

Yeah - I can see where grinding the shaft clamp will help, and I will do that. I loosened the 2 large allen heads on the fame under the radiator and the engine mount below the alternator, Been prying on stuff but haven't been able to get it off yet. It is So Close to coming off that it's not engaged on the spline, just can't get it quite far enough for it to come off.

We might deal with the same issue with my uncle's new bike project. Hope the pry bar would work. We'll take a closer look soon after we finish installing the brake pads and fuel wheels on the truck and clear the garage.
