Took me 7 hours. Had all the plastics off it a month ago and got diverted from working on it trying to do my part to keep the city of Fargo from going under water. Decided to pull the head cover off so I could watch the tension on the chain - got it popped loose before realizing I had to drop the radiator and pop the upper fairing off. Spent half the time running inside to look at my service manual on the computer to figure out what the hell I was doing. Thankfully I got to reuse the $45 head cover gasket. None the less - so happy I was finally able to get it together and ride. Need to buy a new battery and get the correct air cleaner for it. and now its 40* and possibly snow.
