    make your own bearing press, super easy and cheap, there are plenty of how-to's out there.

    pullers aren't as easy to make but some auto parts stores rent blind-hole and other pullers that may work... if you even need one.

    EDIT: and you don't need a garage, just a table with a sheet of cardboard as your work area after you remove the parts from the bike.

    Hmm...let me see what I can do

    But shock is back!!



    I was told that the shock was in remarkably good shape for its age as most sharks are pretty beat at this point that are on bikes over 20 years old . Specifically the body was in good shape . Spring rate is 5.2. The service included a new seal piston service a bumper was installed oil recharge and re-valve for dual sport. I threw them an extra 30 bucks and bought them donuts

    working on it now!!

    can't wait to ride this thing...never serviced the shock in the 4 years/thousands of miles I've ridden it...gonna feel like a new bike

    hoping to get some saddle time after work this weekend in Cleveland National Forest! I may even load up my bike tomorrow so that I will have the bike loaded up, and ready to ride two days later on Saturday

    also - in regards to the 1996 linkage resembling a devoll linkage - can you swap it in?



    no, you can not

    the dogbone length is different...and the knuckle has a different mounting spot (although it will fit into the shock eyelet)

    the mechanic that did the shock was also aware of the devoll linkage and said it helped quite a bit...but he mentioned that swapping anything out meant changing the valving the match as quite a bit of dynamics are altered with the linkage. Best I stick to stock and learn a $15 lesson instead of a $500 one.

    okay, shock is in!

    unfortunately I can't find my service manual so I don't know the torque numbers for the shock bolts...I have read 33-38ft lbs from other bikes, so I used 33 for now and will look around for the manual

    I was so excited to see a difference, that without the tank/seat/exhaust mounted, I stood on it and gave it a peg bounce, and rolled it off a familiar curb - no more oscillations, and bike feels nice and firm!

    I tried to measure some sag, but reading up it does me no good without the bike fully loaded up, and me completely geared up. It also sucks without a second person...if I had to guess the static sag is roughly 25mm and the race sag is roughly 74mm without anything on it. I will get it all loaded up and check again.
