Hello . I'm removing an 1100 engine to install a starter clutch. I would appreciate any tech tips or advise on any specialty tools needed.
Thanks

I've pulled several 1100 engines in my previous sideline rebuilding old junked 1100s. There are no special tools needed other than a snap ring plier that can reach into the u-joint to remove the snap ring that holds the u-joint to the engine. Other than that it's pretty straight forward. You don't have to remove the carbs, just remove the bolts that hold the intake runners to the engine and hold the carbs up against the frame with rope or bungees over the top of the false tank. Remove the mounting bolts including the sub frame on the left side, the piece the kick stand is attached to. After the electrical cables and other such like the exhaust manifold are dropped off you can wiggle the engine out toward the left side. A bike jack like those sold by Harbor Freight or other vendors is worth it's weight in gold when removing and installing the engine. Other wise it's more difficult with a floor jack and a helper or two. With a bike jack I can get the engine out of an 1100 by 67 year old self in about an hour. Pretty much the same going in. When putting it back don't forget the swing arm boot. Don't ask.

I highly recommend anyone owning an 1100 buy a Honda service manual for their bike. They are only $36 from Helm Inc. Available here: Helm Inc.
