XR650L Rear Shock Removal Questions

Any secrets to remove the rear shock?

How long does it take?

I am going to start pulling the front and rear suspension when I get home and was curiuos about the rear.

Time to respring, revalve etc... Let's see if we can make the bucking bronco a smooth pig.


Remove the airbox, then the shock removal is easy.

Thanks, Got home last night and had front and rear out in little over an hour.

Now it's off to the suspension guy (Suspensions by Jake - ex Factory Showa builder for Honda Racing) for a total revamping (Springs, Valving, Shim stack, Piston polishing etc...)
