    how do I remove the cylinders 2001 gp1200r

    I have a trashed #2 cylinder. I have the motor broke down all the way to the cylinders and cant seem to get them loose. I have removed the 12 bolts on the corners of each cylinder but it wont budge. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Also, if any of you have a good cylinder for cell with a piston, I would be interested.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Tap around the top of ot it with a soft mallet, there are some alignment pins that are holding it.

    Thanks, I am going to work on it some tomorrow. I'll try that out. Do you know if it is possibe to take all 3 cylinders off at once while they are attached to the manifold or do I need to remove the manifold and powervalves and take the cylinders out one at a time?

    You want to remove the exhaust manifold first
