Concerns after installing Wilbers 641 shock with scissor jack?
I installed a Wilbers 641 shock using a scissor jack between the rear tire and tail fender while using a rear stand (in essence, similar to dropping the swingarm if using footpeg stands or an ABBA stand). The process wasn't too bad at all after the fact. Of course, issues popped a long the way, the main one being that I had some difficulty installing the new shock, feeding it from the bottom (reverse of how the original shock came out) because there wasn't enough space.
So, I did what I thought was sensible and tried feeding it from the top as I read somewhere people did this with other bikes. So I cranked up the scissor jack, not enough room, crank it more, not enough room, etc, when I reached a point where I thought f*** this and I retried feeding it from the bottom a few times, and back and forth between the the top and bottom, until I noticed that the hole seemed to get smaller when attempting to feed from the bottom (didn't click until after a few tries).
So, I backed out the scissor jack beyond the starting point and low and behold the hole was large enough to fit the shock.
Now my concern is whether or not I might have damaged something by jacking up the tail, possibly too high, for what seemed like a considerable amount. I don't recall anything popping or breaking and I checked the chain slack which is around the max recommended llimit, which I probably would expect after about 1000 miles without a chain adjustment.
Should I be concerned? If so, what are things to look out for?
