Now that it's getting colder here in Wisconsin, I thought maybe it would be a good time to check the timing belts and tensioners. I've read the fine articles here but I havetwo questions. Is it possible to do the work safely without using a bike lift andcan I leave the radiator intact and still get to everything? Just retired so I have the time. Thanks!

You don't need a lift at all. It can be done w/o removing the radiator but it's not easy. Probably the time you save not taking it off will be given back in the extra time it takes to do the job with it on....and it really is PITA with it on!!!

If you don't remove the radiator all the way, at least get it leaned out enough for working room. Trying to get the center bolt on the right side cover is a major PITA if the radiator is in place............been there!

This is also a good time to change your thermostat, Anti freeze & look at your water pump for signs of wear. Because if one of those fail later, you gotta rip it all apart again!
