hard part is suspending the back tire off the ground,, i've done it with the bike tilted over pivoting on its stand with the rear tire off the ground(held by a buddy) then removed and replaced the linkage real quick

You need a lift or exposed rafters. It easy if you can support the front and rear. You dont have to do both at the same time.

insert fat chick on back seat......done

no but for real. I didnt take mine apart but i checked every bolf before the last rackday. Shove a piece of rebar or a long enough metal rod through the swingarm pivot nut, lift bike and have a buddy throw jackstands under the bar thus supporting the back of the bike and holdin the tire off the ground. May need to load a backpack full of and put it on the tank to keep it on the front wheel and the real off the ground.

If your to weak to lift ur bike....uhhh i dont know what to tell ya....haha sorry

front you can pull the forks up through the tripple clamp or if you wanna do i the right way you can have you springs in your forks cut down.
