Video: K-Tech Razor R Install

This is my first video howto. Ever. So I was figuring that out while I was figuring out how to remove the stock shock, and figuring out how to get the K-Tech installed. Along the way I decided to start a YouTube channel. Dunno where it's all going but one has to start somewhere.

Hope this helps someone out.

It takes a lot of work and effort to video something like this and it is especially difficult when parts are deep in the bike and not easily seen with the naked eye, much less a cell phone (or whatever is used for filming.) Thanks for putting forth the effort to help make a good video for people looking to replace their shocks with something better. (Wouldn't ANYTHING be better?) You've done the GSX-S community a public service. Thanks!

Is it simply not loading or do you get a message about the video being blocked in your country? Is it the embedded video here on the forum? Did you view it on YouTube (either the website or mobile app)? Just trying to understand as I'm new to uploading content to YouTube and I may have missed something in the channel or video settings.

3rd like from me.

Using your method, did you not have to unload the shock first? Wouldn't that make lining up the bolts more difficult during installation?

And is there is a reason you used a floor jack for the rear instead of a rear stand?

Thank you for the like!

Great question - a point I missed in the video. I just barely unloaded the shock. Just barely. The tail came up maybe 5 centimeters. It seems like a natural position and the bolts were easy out and back in.

My rear stand wouldn't have lifted the swingarm high enough, so I opted for a floor jack. A scissor jack would work too, FWIW.

Scissor jack on top of the rear tire to the underside of the tail section (I used a piece of wood under tail section) is easy to unload the shock bolt. As you’re raising the scissor jack with one hand, other hand pulling/turning on shock bolt (or a friend’s hand), you can feel when the bolt frees up once the “sweet spot” is reached.
