I have the service manual, I know which bolts to remove. Don't have a motorcycle stand.
Bike is currently semi-stripped, on front and rear stand with no wheels on, but can be reinstalled in 5 minutes, no worries.
Can I remove the shock with the swingarm rested on the rear race stand ? or do I need to unload the rear shock ? if yes, how ? place block of wood under oil sump, near oil drain plug ?
