I am performing this update myself. Got everything off and then find out I do not have a large enough socket to remove the center nut that holds the entire basket into place. Can anyone please confirm for me what size nut this is? I am guessing 32mm but wanted to confirm before i order a new one.

I can check when I'm in my garage. Not sure if you have the special tool or impact wrench it but there is a video that shows a nice and easy way to do it with a simple strap:

I used an impact wrench to get the center nut off and it worked a charm. Just make sure the bike is in neutral as I believe the shock is not safe for the hardened gears in the transmission!

I used a loong thin socket over one of the hub fingers (the ones the springs screw into) and as you start impacting the hub will rotate until the socket locks against the body of the wrench thereby starting to undo the center nut. Otherwise the impact wrench may just keep rotating the center hub.

Ugh, people, please re-read my post. I am not asking *how* to do this, I am asking if 32mm is the correct size.

Put a tape measure across the flats and measure it. The conversion from english to metric is INCHES x 25.4 = mm

Just sharing a useful technique that keeps people from using an impact tool. Looks like you got your answer though.

Any tips on getting the old basket separated from the flange gear? Mine is stuck on there very tight with no movement or play.

Update: I managed to finally get them separated. I tried softly banging the center with a rubber mallet with no success. Finally what worked was using a flathead screwdriver to pry around the outside very gently. Crude, but it worked.

One update I did want to add was that the service bulletin directions are off in my opinion. It tells you to insert the rubber cush drives into the new basket first, which is a mistake. Place the rubber cush onto the flange first, then apply a bit of oil to each spot on the basket, and then insert the flange into the basket.

You know that oil degrades rubber, right?
