954 Rear Shock Removal

Quick question......can the rear shock be removed by just taking the rear wheel off? I have all the bolts loose waiting for it's replacement and it looks like it will slide out with the rear wheels out of the way. I still have the side cowls and exhaust in place.

You don't need to remove the wheel.
Support the rear subframe so the tyre is just touching the ground.
Remove the lower linkage bolt and lower shock bolt.
Remove the upper bolt.
Pull the shock out through the bottom.

Re: 954 Rear Shock Removal

Will this work with the exhaust and side cowls in place? I have the rider foot pegs flipped and will be lowering the bike down on jack stands off the rear stand.

As long as you can access the bolts I would expect it to work fine.

Re: 954 Rear Shock Removal

I already have the top bolt nut off as well as the 3 lower link nuts. Just waiting for the replacement shock. I hope it ends up being this easy.

Are you replacing it with another OEM shock or something aftermarket?

Re: 954 Rear Shock Removal

It's a low mileage OEM take-off. The compression adjuster is frozen on my current one.
