Remove the 4 large t40 torx bolts that are holding the caliper bracket to tunnel. You need to access them thru the slots on rotor.

First remove the flap, drill out rivets. Mine is already off. you may need to remove bumper to drill out rivets easier. Next, remove the rear tail light plastic shroud. There are two very small 7/32 bolts that hold it on, that are bolted from under the back into the plastic shroud.(SEE VIDEO next post)
We want the taller section to be as long as possible....so cut the front sections to length, and leave the tallest pieces as is.
After measuring, I cut my front sections to 37.5" long for my 129" track model.

Tunnel protectors,drive shaft closeups and general look underneath tunnel ect.
with plastic tail light shroud out of the way, and bumper lowered away from hole cutouts....slide in the longer section first in each slot. They should be cut to 37.5" for a 129" sled.(see previous post)
Next Slide in the taller section last at back end of sled....these should NOT be cut in length.
This cut length allows approx 1/2" space at end of channel for "crimping" of the end of slots to keep them from moving around.
once tight together, crimp end with a pliers.

Couple shots of the Edrive rollers.
Very cool series of photos/videos/detailed info. For folks like me who haven't seen a XS-ified 1200, I find it extremely interesting to see the all the nitty-gritty differences compared to my XR setup.
I feel compelled to clarify for some who may be confused by your photo of the E-drive rollers up in post #10...as clear and round as those look, those are not the rollers you took photos of. Those are super clear photos of the pivot points/heels of the weights. The rollers can't be seen in your pics, though they're very nearby and I think I might just see the very edge of one of the rollers in the dark shadows immediately below the weight. Can't make out their shape.
I am very curious what the actual rollers look like, whether they are round or not, but sorry to say I think it will likely take clutch removal and you'll need to knock the governor cup off the clutch in order for you to get a real good photo of them.
Enjoy your project and keep all the quality info coming! Good stuff!

I agree with Craze. It's amazing to have a forum like this for knowledge and know-how, especially when you can't figure things out and when guys like Dan (and Craze and many others) take the time to go through things in detail, document and explain to lesser educated people like myself as to how things work, how to fix and what not. I would have never had the guts to take apart my machine like I did yesterday, because i know there are guys on Dootalk who know a whole lot more and can help when I can't figure something out or I mess things up LOL
Great work Dan. Excited to see the end result.

Since the chaincase is still open, I decided this was a good time to install HELIX HEX bolts from C&T powersports.
Video- going over the jackshaft removal process
To install a new helix or helix HEX bolts, we need to remove entire jackshaft w/secondary attached due to the stock TORX bolts which are difficult to get at with standard ratchet and Torx socket. It must slide out of chaincase toward the left side.
Pics show the jackshaft bearing behind secondary, and its retainer bracket. Remove one bolt, don't drop the nut!
the other smaller bolt is a loose clamp for brake line, leave this intact and let bracket lay there.(last pic)
