Re: Rear Suspension Removal
If you look closely at the picture in the manual the seat frame and fuel tank are still in place where they show the strut removal. I never removed the tank and had no issues. It does make access to the top bolt easier but not sure of the trade off. When I first installed my Ohlins I was in the middle of a 24 K anyway and had the tank off, but not necessary.
