Question F3 rear shock install

Have the shock dangling by the top bolt but canít get it to drop down because thebolt inside it doesnít have enough room to clear the black,cast midframe

Do I really have to split the bike in half?

Unless Iím missing something here...

Also trying to get the race filter in, ecu out, steering damper in and headers off

hey, I just did this today for a new Nitron shock. you need a old school Allen key to hold the bolt... its tight but it will fit... use the wrench on the side of the nut to turn the Allen until the key fits in then just hold in place. when removing the bolt put a wood plank or something under the rear wheel to be able to lift and lower the real wheel with ease for aligning. I didn't even remove the dogbone.

When your pulling out the shock you will need to let the rear wheel lower until you have the clearance to pull it out the top.

As above you need an allen key and not a ratchet, or a small ratchet. It's pretty easy with the right tool. In the end I have cut down a ratchet allen key and it just about fits so I can torque it up.
