It's not a bad job .. On the TRX500's the front drive shaft doesn't have to be removed so that makes it faster .. I just remove the inner frnders , floorboards , bottoms of the front fenders .. remove the fan/oil cooler .. That's all the body parts.. then it's just the case bolts pop the cover .. (An ES is a little longer ) .. The complete job takes between 1 - 1 1/2 hours ..

I started 1 yesterday that the centrifugal clutch wasn't tight on and would pull off without a puller so Honda wants a new crankshaft installed in that bike ..That's the third one the centrifugal clutch wasn't tight on..

LOL .. I remember back a number of years we had a guy working for us that went to MMI in Florida ,all he talked was Harley ..I wouldn't let him change my spark plug ..

By some of the stories I hear on the ATV forums I'd say there's a lot working at dealerships without much schooling of any kind..
