KTM520 - can the motor come out of the frame without taking top end off?

Recommended Posts

OK - I'm in the process off dropping the motor on my KTM520 supermoto race bike for a rebuild.... but have hit a snag.

I can't, for the life of me, get it our of the frame.

Manual seems to think that it's possible; but I can't get it to go regardless of how I maneuver it about.

Am I missing something obvious, or does the top end have to come off first?

If so, can you get away with the cam cover; or does it have to be the whole top-end...?

I'm confused...

I know it doesn't seem possible but the motor will come out without taking any of the top end off. One you've done it a couple of times it's pretty easy. It has to be turned exactly right and rolled out of the frame.

Good luck. 👍
