    Default How to remove rear mono shock?

    Hello,
    I need to replace my rear shock with a new one. What are the steps to remove it and are there any critical things I need to do to stabilize the bike when the old one is off and before the new one goes on?

    I couldn't find any videos or other instructions on this, only on how to remove the spring, which I don't need to do.

    I used a jack stand on one side and the jack on either sides of the exhaust near the footpegs from memory. I wince watching people jack up using the exhaust, surely it'd put a lot of strain on the exhaust to engine studs. You can remove the rear wheel so it balances on the front wheel better.

    If you're confident, you can rock the bike onto one of the jack stands, remove the jack and put a 2nd jack stand under there, then rock the bike back onto the 2nd jack stand.
