HELP! Changing back to stock dogbone

Sorry for the noobish questions, I've searched this and not gotten exactly what I was looking for.

I raised up my front forks back to stock, added the stock kickstand, now I need to add the stock dogbone back in.

What do I lift the bike with? I have ratchet straps, rafters above me, should I use that and hoist it somehow? Is there a better way?

Once I remove the dogbone, what do I need to do to reinstall the old one? I was reading about pressing some bearing back in?

Any help much appreciated.

Man, I totally forgot how to do this.

I know it was super easy. I just unbolted the dogbone. Jacked up the bike somehow and installed the stock one. Done.

Re: HELP! Changing back to stock dogbone

You have to lift the back of the bike without preloading the swing arm. If you have aftermarket rear sets you can lift the back of the bike using the swing arm lift then use car jack stands under the foot pegs to hold up the bike. I have heard of people flipping the foot pegs upside down to use the jack stand method. You can lift the back up using the rafters and ratcheting straps too. You may need to remove the tail fairings and hook to a solid part of the sub frame.

Changing the dogbones is easy. Take it apart and put it back together.

Re: HELP! Changing back to stock dogbone

OK Thanks, here goes, I'm gonna use the jack stands under the foot pegs.

So basically my idea is to put the jack under the swing arm and keep it up whilst I remove the bolts, then I could let the swingarm come down a bit for the new one. Lets see how this goes!

Re: HELP! Changing back to stock dogbone

I recall doing mine on the kickstand. I didn't even use a jack or rear stand. Just unbolted. Lifted the frame with my guns and had my wife insert the new dogbone.

Doesn't matter. But right side up is how I would install it.

Nope, sitting here reading through the forums this seems harder than the front forks, I just don't want to bolt it in the wrong spots, not sure where to do this, UGH!
