Rear shock removal

(1/8) > >>

Hi guys,
Anyone removed and replaced the rear shock on a 2011 xc?
Can the reservoir be detached from the main unit then reattached or.......?
Anything I should be aware of?
All advice greatfully received!!

I think lots of us have removed the rear shock for swingarm maintenance but don't detach the reservoir as it will lose all it's gas and can't be re-filled. You'll end up needing a new shock.
The Roadie shock can be re-built though as it doesn't have a reservoir.

Have had the shock out of my 2012 XC.  It can be removed without removing the reservoir from the shock.  As stated above, do not remove reservoir from shock.

Only had a quick look but is there room for the reservoir to get thru the frame on removal?
