LT rear shock install?
Well, I thought I could get this on this week, but guess not. The Clymer manual states the fuel tank, both sides of fairing, battery, seat and seat retaining bridge, both rear foot rests, need to be removed. Is that so?
No garage and a stoned driveway make this more challenging. Never would have thought to attempt this, except for the 50+ degrees the next two days or so.
If it is that much work, I might as well wait till spring and get all the work done that required removal of the entire fairing, install the aux lights, wiring, air and fuel filters etc.
It seemed, reading other posts, the fuel tank did not have to be removed.
Any thoughts? Really hate to pay the $175 for a rear shock install........
Now at 42k, any big maintenance items needed before the 48k?
