XLT engine removal help!!
I've got everything unhooked...
exhaust is all off (except manifold), flame arrestor/intake off,
I've got a chain hoist hooked to the eye and pull it up
I don't see how it's going to come out.... so I put it back down on the mounts.
Whats the trick? Do I need to remove the carbs or anything else??

I think it will come out with the carbs but i would pull them off just to be safe. After that it should just lift right out. It is a tight fit but it will come out.

XLT engine removal help!!
This is from SBT and shows engine removal on a GPR. This should help.

yeah I read the SBT one... I thought maybe on an XLT you could keep the carbs on. guess I'll just remove them.
again... I'm so glad I dont do this for a living!

I havent pulled the motor in my XLT yet, but by looking at it, You would either need to pull your main cowling off to give you more room or strip the motor down (carb rack, exhaust manifold and cylinders) while inside the hull, then lift it out at an angle by hand. The hole on the XLT isnt anywhere close to the size of the GPR and the front cowling hangs way over the engine compartment. Hell I still cuss like a sailor just pulling the f'n pipe.

Call Carl @ Island Racing.
He justed replaced motors in both my 01 XLT's.

I took the carbs off in gpr and xlt, leave manifold on. The carbs have to come off due to width issues on opening for hull on xlt
It should come out with a little tilting of motor.
I'm sure you will get with a little patience!
Idoubt you will get ahold of Carl at the moment as he is extremely busy

Carl is a good dude, but I wouldn't bother him (or anyones shop directly) for something like this...
I got the motor out.
The carbs needed to come off first. Pull it azz-end out first and it came right out.
Now to post a new thread with what I found
