HELP! Removing dogbones on 2007 R6

The guy I bought my R6 from had it lowered and gave me the stock dog bones. I really dont like it lowered so I want to put the stock ones back in. So, after reading a few posts on here I figured I could do it myself....then I came to a problem spot.

How the do I get the bolt out when the mount for the exhaust is in the way?? :dunce: I really do NOT want to remove the exhaust.

This is on the kickstand side of the bike.

7497933030 8fb9efd9cc z

7497931580 c16d4df82f z

Also, once I get it back to stock height, will I need to adjust the chain?

Thanks!

Same issue with my bike...I don't play with things of such value to bike.... Motorcycles Unlimited took care of mine. Adjusted suspension for my weight and welded a foot on kickstand because it had been cut. %100 better ride.

I'm not familiar with Yamaha. I'm sure someone will come in with some info other that Motorcycles Unlimited. It good to do the simple stuff on your own.

Usually you can disconnect the linkage from the shock and swingarm, and be able to move it to a clear spot to remove that bolt..

And put it back from the opposite side for ease of removal next time.

Once I loosened up the exhaust bolts I lowered the jack and put a little pressure on the cat and it gave me enough room.

Glad you got it sorted. Whether there's a will, there's a way.
