    '93 GSF250 valve cover removal - Mini guide

    I have started taking photo's when doing jobs that I don't expect to complete within a couple of hours, and since the amount of documentation on the 250 ('93) GSF is pretty woeful I'm going to post up a mini guide of how to get the valve cover off.

    Bear in mind a couple of steps are probably missing and I don't want to be responsible for any fuck-ups, so use this guide at your own discretion =)

    1. Here im removing the breather hose. At this point I have already removed the fuel tank, seat and side panels, and unclipped the pipes and hoses from around the air filter box.

    15. The manual says use a rubber hammer... In the end we resorted to a real hammer and a block of wood but BE CAREFUL!

    Nice post, keep up the good work.
    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    Solid valve cover connection.

    Hi all, newbee from Belgium, question about this particular valve cover.

    Unscrewed all 8 bolts from cover, does not come lose, not with soft aid of rubber mallet, nor more rude banging with shizzle and steel hammer. Do I need to undo the bolts over the camchaincover too? Indeed, no manual, just trying to check valve clearance of my just bought '94 GSF 250 with 63k on the clock.

    Looking forward to all suggestions.

    Greets, Raf.

    Pretty sure there's no retaining bolts inside the top breather cover.

    But - the damm things stick on the water pipes going into the head. Soak the pipes well in some sort of penetrating fluid.
    I used an electric heat gun too. The steel pipes corrode which makes them "grow" a little after which they're a pain...
    I will no longer see PM's on this a/c. If you wish to PM me, use grumphv2 a/c please - and include an email address if you require a reply.
    Thanks
