Hi all.
Just wondering if anyone has replaced their rear shock without removing the muffler & exhaust.
I've read through as many of the related threads that I could find & could only find reference to guys dropping a GSXR or similar shock in through the top.
I'll be fitting a Wilbers with remote reservoir & hydraulic pre-load adjuster & just wondering if anyone has managed to squeeze one out, then back in.

Thanks in advance.

I installed a Wilbers with remote reservoir. If you have a long enough Allen key you can do it without removing the exhaust. I posted a thread detailing my installation. It has lots of pictures

Thanks guys, very helpful.
Shock hasn't arrived yet but forks have been re valved & re sprung & are back in.
Front wasn't such an issue as the rear, but I wasn't going to do half the job.

Cheers for you help guys.
