The vacuum advance on my bike came apart. What is the easiest way to change it without pulling the motor thanks ****

Your thread title is confusing; I found that removing the swingarm (and everything rearward you need to remove before you get to the swingarm) gives you great access to the ignition advance mechanism including the vacuum advance unit. Also, I have seen some posts suggesting you can get along fine without the vacuum advance. Vacuum advance is just a cruise mode gas mileage improver.
