Don't squeeze the clutch lever when it's off. Also, don’t over tighten the screws when you put it back on. Case screws of that size are all 10nm.

Make sure you align the case saver eyelets with the countershaft sprocket cover when refitting the cover, as the screws can be refitted through the cover and into the case without going through the case saver eyelets and the saver will ride on the chain. :)

Make sure you are square on and have a good location on the allen bolts. Use a allen socket. One missed location and the bolts shall round off

I doubt we are more than 20 miles apart as the crow flies. We shall have to meet up some time.. if you need a hand on anything ping me, I have taken most bits off the ST a few times. Oh and BTW rounded off bolts on my clutch slave..............twice !

You should be able to put case saver in place without having to remove the clutch slave. I have a desmotimes saver on an ST2 and take it off regularly for chain cleaning/lubing.(might be different for ST4) If you take the bottom edge/eyelet of the case saver and pass over the c-shaft sprocket @ about 12 o'clock you should be able to snake it around the back side of sprocket and then in to place. It might take a few tries to get it.
