Greasing rear suspension
« on: January 26, 2020, 11:40:20 AM »
 I decided to grease the rear suspension, but can't get the bolt out that releases the part with the bearings from the frame. The bolt stops against the frame, didn't have this problem with my 2013 Tiger, any ideas guys :084:

Sorted, had to bend the carbon canister thingy down :123:

The photo lacks perspective to see the environment, and brought you advice !

Hi guys

Almost back together, but Beer o Clock beckons :031:
Good satisfaction in doing the job, plus saves me money. Dont get any easier though, seeing as I am almost 59 :087:
Gave her a good clean though, 10000 miles of chain lube lol
Relieved to see that the chain adjusting bolts were free, but greased them anyway.I read too many posts where they are seized  :028:

Yes, the one is a fiddle to get out & not poss to get my torque wrench at it. Torqued to a gudly pull on a spanner.

I seem to recall those screws were Torx on the earlier model so a bit easier to access
