oh and Colum put this on the old forum
it's the stand he has the bike on is what i'm going to sort out so i can fit the shock without too many issues![hr][hr]
My brother from a nudda mutha, i put that up for you to buy what hes selling lol. It transforms a mille into a millie that can easily transport 50 litres of luggage with panache. Thats my new tueday word, panache, a word of French origin that carries the connotation of a flamboyant manner and reckless courage. Yes ventura, the thinking panachey mans choice...
When pulling the shock do this. Get a half inch threaded bar from a threaded bar shop or builders providers. Bout 3 to 4 foot.
Put the bike on the rear paddock stand.
Insert yer pipe through the swinger pivot hole.
Get your two car jack stands and position em under the rod as high as you can.
Drop the bike off the rear paddock stand carefully. Viola, the bikes now ready for shockectomy.
Because you were creative with the exhaust you may have to remove the wheel to get her out.
Or, you could just buy an abba stand thingymagiggy like yer man has.
To motivate you heres a pic of my old Charlene,
