Engine removal

Where may I obtain and what type of tool is required to loosen/remove the slotted nuts which hold the engine in the frame?

Do you have an SP1 or SP2?

For SP1, you'll need 07VMA-MBB0100 or 07VMA-MBB0101 for the engine mount adjust bolt lock nuts.

For both SP1 and SP2, you'll also need 07YMA-MCF0100 or 07YMA-MCFA100 for the swingarm adjust bolt lock nuts.

While you can order these special tools from Honda (not cheap), I'd suggest using these part numbers and search on eBay.
Several companies made equivalent tools for a lot less.

I found one special tool for my VFR800 steering head lock nuts.
Works better than the OEM part for a fraction of the cost.

While you can find some made from steel or aluminum, I'd suggest buying steel for durability.

I'm in the process of doing a full engine tear down, and so far, the best tool to have is a combo 150psi air compressor and impact gun
