    Default Excellent Tutorial

    Lowered mine 2" (Barons). A friend and I and it went well thanks to this thread and the pics.
    FYI I stripped all the plastics off first and we broke all the nuts and bolts loose before lifting the bike.
    YES put the jack as forward as possible. Also remember to put a little grease on all four bolts.
    Thank you again!

    I purchased lowering bones and am about to bring it in to a shop and was told that the swingarm would have to be removed to lower the bike and it would take up to 4 hours? This does not make sense to me?

    get the bike out of there , 4 hours ....
    if you have a bike jack , time to find a piece of cardbord to use as a bed ,and do it yourself .
    put jack far enough forward to clear the movement of swingarm , the rear may want to go down ,
    strap it to ceiling any method will work .
    and remove long bolt at the front .
    all info needed is in the thread .

    Swingarm pivot shaft = 72.5 lbs
    Rear and front shock absorber mounting bolts = 32.5 lbs
    Cushion rod nut = 79.5 lbs
    Cushion level mounting nut ( upper ) = 79.5 lbs
    Cushion level mounting nut ( lower ) = 61.5 lbs

    Nope. Swing arm stays as is. It's just the bones


    You will need a good impact though to break bolts loose

    Found a couple of pictures in my file , I deleted most when I went Air Ride ( selfish Me )
    once you have the tension of the shock removed , just a matter of replacing bones .
    tricks to reach where it is not confortable = tools .Part shaped in a curve is the Dogbone = cushion lever .

    Once your get the bolts loose you have to monkey with the rear wheel with a piece of wood or other things to lift the wheel to get it aligned

    That shop is trying to rip you off. I got the adjustable bones and did the install by myself in about 2 hours. Used only hand tools (no power tools) and a stand. It was also my first time doing it with a youtube video as my guide.

    Default Remove Exhaust?

    Do I need to remove the exhaust to install the lowering bones?

    ..
    Absolutely not , got back to the first post in the thread , 9th picture will show you where you MUST
    position the motorcycle lift , to clear the suspension elements , 99% of the work is done from the
    left side of the bike . if you can have rear of the bike supported from the top because with the
    lift so far forward under the bike , the lift is not under the center of gravity , i had a big piece
    of wood under the rear tire , and only removed it if someone held the front wheel down , or
    if the rear of the bike was tied to the ceiling .
    up a few posts , I put a picture of how I lined up extensions on wratchet to get to far bolt .

    Nope, but do yourself a favor and remove the belly pan to get better access
