HOW TO: 04-06 R1 Install Shock
Whats up everyone, I just installed my new rear shock and I remembered to take pics so I decided to make a how to. For a 04 - 06 R1
You need a rear stand
Closed end wrench 14mm
Large Socket wrench with extension 14mm
Small socket wrench with 10mm socket extension
You also need two other sockets but I forgot what size, one is bigger than 19mm and the other one is like a 11mm or 12mm.
So the first thing you do is get the rear wheel up in the air and take off the lower cowlings. I just took off my cowlings as one piece rather than messing with trying to separate them. They are held on by 4 allen head clips on each side plus one allen head bolt on each side. There are also two allen head clips in the front below the radiator opening.
