I'm changing the spring on my bike and I only need to remove the bottom bolt. I've got the bike up on stands but I don't see how to access the bottom bolt. Do I need to remove the dog bone and work from underneath?
You can't remove the bottom shock bolt unless you have the bike off it's rear suspension; swingarm stand won't cut it. Need to put the center of the bike on something to allow the rear suspension to fully unload. Look at the threads of using Jack stands on the foot pegs to get the bike up off the suspension.
I inverted the pegs and lifted the bike onto Jack stands. I don't believe lifting from under the Akra exhaust would be a good idea. Actually removing the swing arm bolt allowed the wheel to drop sufficiently to access the holy.
