    Replacing rear shock Gen 2 (lowering)

    Hi Guys

    Please can you let me know how to get the rear shock off on a Gen 2. I read some older posts on the forum and am a little confused if I need to take the tank off or can do it by removing the side panels. If anyone has a link to the service manual or DVD I would be very grateful.

    I am fitting a Hyperpro 20mm lowering progressive spring.

    Thanks very much.

    Hi there!
    Ran across the Hyperpro shock too, how did you like it after you put it on?  Did you have to replace your side stand? I assume you raised the forks a tad too?
