Is it possible to remove the oil pan on a 1969 GS400 without removing other components?

    Noticed that my oil pan has some dents and was thinking of pulling it to knock them out - also, kind of curious to see what, if any, kind of debris might be in there. Is that something that can be done without pulling off a bunch of other parts, or no? The amount of effort and hassle involved may dictate whether I decide to mess with it or not. Any insight is appreciated.

    I have pulled my stk pan on a 72, I had to raise the motor some, I did a bearing swap, the gasket was pain in the butt

    The gasket is the biggest pain. I have had the best luck using spray tack on the gasket and letting dry to the block. Need to raise the motor as high as you can to do it.

    I know that it is a few hours to prepare to remove the engine but I say it is well worth the effort. Been there, done that 4 times.
