Does the gas tank need to be removed to take off the shock

No it doesn't. You don't even need to pull the subframe if you remove the rear fender and the exhaust as they create a lot of working room. Hope this helps.

I removed mine by just takeing the pivot shaft out at the top and the linkage arm off. came right out!


So you just unbolted the shock and where did you pull it out from?And this was with the subframe still on?

Yes and pulled it out from the righthand side (if you were sitting on it) but take the exhaust section out.

You can pull the shock out the left side right infront of the numberplate by removing just the 2 shock bolts and nothing else.
