Shock Replacement

Tank, sidecovers, airbox ?

But not necessarily the swingarm. (Although, it might be a good time to perform all of the swingarm/drivehaft/ U-joint/ clutch bleed maintenance?)

That sure is "purdy",and if I were that deep I'd be greasing the driveshaft...

Well no ride report yet but it sure is purty

This model has single adjustment for compr/rebound which is fine by me

Straight from their facility in France  < $500

How do you get to the adjuster with the airbox in place?

I have Ohlins, so no knob like yours but I could easily get my fingers to that area reaching from the rear over the tire. Feels like there is maybe 20-30mm between the shock top and the airbox where your knob is, so not much room. If you have svelte little monkey hands it's doable. I don't know how stiff the adjuster is to turn but I'd maybe think about somehow enlarging the diameter of it for more leverage. I didn't pull the seat to see what access is from there. Possibly a little tool could be made:nerd:

Regulator and valve cover gaskets are in so I will be putting it back together today hopefully

No mechanical wizard I spend more time looking for bolts I've dropped that actually turning a wrench

I have several magnetic dishes that I got from Harbor Freight. I try to throw all the fasteners for a section into one dish - and another dish for another section.
