dog bones
« on: September 25, 2017, 03:14:21 AM »

Does anybody know the size of the 2 long bolts going through the dog bones ?
If they are metric , they look about 14 mm ?

From memory they were a complete arse to get out. I am hoping I have one in a box at home. I will look tonight.

Did one break?

It's OK buddy , was about to fit adjustable links but they are fine .
Getting the old dog bones off is not going to be easy , looks a real pain .
The bottom bolt is impeded by the exhaust so it's either remove exhaust completely  :( or drop the dog bones and bracket complete off which also looks like an epic :-[  and then the seat will hit the wheel.
Nothing easy eh .

I think I put mine up on a cinder block.

Ring spanner on the exhaust side and an impact driver on the other end.

I have had the nuts off with a breaker bar and pretty sure I can get the bolts out with a clout .
Just not sure how to support things when I take the bottom bracket off attached to the rear shock .
Where did you put the cinder block ?

Under the sump, so as not to be touching the exhaust.

It's a two person job. One holds the bike steady, the other attacks the bolt.

Cheers buddy  :)
Looks like the Mrs will be putting my old work gear on to help then  :o.
She effing hates that bike with a passion already  so she will probably be over the moon when I get her to help 8)
Saying that , she doesn't know the difference between a spanner and socket and I doubt she could support the weight so lots of fun .

Hi all ,
Just had a go at changing my dog bones , undid the 2 bolts , started knocking out the bolts (with the sump supported) and realized the rear shock is connected to the dog bone bracket I have to remove to get the long bolt out that is impeded by the exhaust .
Left a screwdriver in the top bolt hole just to support it before thinking about how to do it without crushing the exhaust .
Any advice would be appreciated .
