Yeah, I looked at the shop manual last night. Although it isn't specific it looks like you can. The picture shows no chain in place but it looks like there is room to move it off the teeth. I was concerned the casting would be in the way. I read up on moving the clutch master cylinder here on the forum. Either way, I have a chain breaker so I can always push a pin out.
I also have a few other things to do over the cold days. I have the Speedohealer to install, I'm ordering a PCIII, I am going to remove the headers and have them ceramic coated inside and out. Then, finish up by replacing all the fluids and filters. That should put me in good shape for spring. I'll try to photo some of it, particularly the ceramic coating.
