What do you need to do once you've split the cases?

Cheers,
Brian

I need to look for a small piece of broken piston ring that was dropped in there. i have fished around for hours  with a telescopic magnet, all to no avail. I suppose what i need to know is what do i need to remove before i can split the bottom end. the head, barrels, and pistons are already removed. If there is anyone out there who has done this please share with me what you did.       

 Panic over, i have now got it sorted.

Splitting/joining the cases is super easy because there are no shift forks.

Glad to know. Need to replace leaking outgoing shaft oil seal.
