Hour and a half would be my guess.

That's assuming the starter can be yanked off without dropping the engine out of the bike.

From what I have found, I have to pull the tank, the air box, and the carbs....

Then it's a quick swap.

It a 2 beer job on my beer scale = about a hour if you know your way around a 1st Gen r6.

If you were closer to me I'd give ya a hand.

I cannot see this taking 2 hours at all. 1hr tops and thats with copious amounts of beer drinking in between. just bring it to the track Jane, I can help you with it at the classic or before TTD if you wont be there until then.

Nope, not a hint.

Trying to find a window of time to get this done before the weekend.

It's not the stater, it's the starter
