Easy peasy once got me balance sorted out
Small bench jack was £40 off ebay/amazon.
Crown Socket and 14mm hex socket £12 and £4 though had 14mm it werent needed to extract.
Some cheap sash straps or rachet straps £5.
Old axle stands x2.
You will either need the becker stand or a small jack or just big cahoonys to place the bench jack under the bike.
Securing it for working on is the first main job.
As long as you have an ounce of common sense and can put back everything you took off.
Using liberal quantities of grease and anti seize paste the job is not beyond the most basic of home mechanics.
Guess thats me though do sometimes forget to put shit back where it came from
Really you need a torque wrench for the wheel nuts though they are pretty beasty, otherwise most of everything else has locknuts.
Its worth locating rear brake light switch connector block and separating so you can completly remove right side brake pedal mounting plate.
Incidently my swing arm shaft was not torqued up just hand tight. Dont mean hand tight with tools mean hand tight with your bare hand and your finger stuck in the hole.
Right side bearing had copious amounts of grease though leftside had just enough to last another year or so.
As am changing out the shock it was well worth doing as will make that job a breeze.
Also being as my shock pivot block bolt to the swing arm is seized, I needed it off to get it removed. No way I could ignore that.
All my pivot bearings were on their last legs grease wise, just enough, one more winter or season might have killed them.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
