Ok guys. I've looked at the shop manual and the bike and who knows the EASY way to get at 'em for the 4,000 mile re-torque? No wonder I was putting off checking out the degree of difficulty.:confused:

Taking the rear shock out is easy if you have a centre stand. You still won't have a LOT of room, but that may offer the best chance. (Lube all the pivot bearings while you are there).

Havn't done that with the ABS unit in the way - with the non-ABS bikes that left lots of room.

I have yet to read of a single problem there. I would, and have, left it alone.

Take the motor out, then it will be easy. :mrgreen:

I just looked, and I'd say a 6mm allen socket, 3/8" knuckle, foot long 3/8" extension for the ratchet or torque wrench. Looks fairly easy to get at on the chain side. The ABS valves are right there also.

Or a ball end 6mm allen key might reach in there.

Me thinks Suzuki put that red threadlock of death on those bolts too.

I like the idea of leaving it alone and that coming from you and yer savvy carries some weight. Will check the front and if it is right then the rear will be left alone. Also will check for leakage from time to time. Thanks

I never leave home without the center stand. On the recommendation of the GW guy it shall be monitored and left alone and probably never loosen up. After further perusal I figure it can be reached with the right assemblage of play toys and appropriate grimaces but at this point it's time to quit worrying and ride ride ride.

The stainless steel bolts are pretty flimsy. I removed the front ones already and got rid of the red threadlock. Then used anti seize on them to re install so they don't get sheared off for the next guy (or me :mrgreen:).
