2 hours, wow that quick!! is that from striped down to fully re-assembled ? It took me around 5 hours after the old engine was out to getting it fired up. Done it 3 or 4 times now
Just follow the manual step by step the only bits I swapped the order of was the manual states to but the rad on before the header pipes, much easier if you do this the other way round as you have more space to work in ..
Lifting Engine in... I hoisted the bike up on a mini crane over the engine. Another method is to take the front triples and forks off and just pivot the frame over the top.. I went for the crane route as I didn't want any extra to do :) !
You'll need to make a tool for the castle nut. I made this out a old socket, and be carefull when doing the engine bolt adjuster up, they snap easy..
Any questions just shout.
