HL springs on a 650 sra

EDL BRUTE2010-08-11 17:24:38 +0000 #1
I about to put my High Lifter springs on my 05 650 sra. Didnt see any thing on changeing them out. How much a PITA is this going to be putting them on? I have the body off and the HL spring tool.

Is there any tips or trick on getting them out that could make it easy.

Would it be worth it to doing a write up on it for the how to?

Thanks for the help!

It's not too bad, especially since you already have the plastics off and the compressor. The rear single shock upper bolt was VERY tight on my 08 SRA for some reason, i had to use a 1/2" breaker bar to get it loose. That was the worst part. I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate a write up.

i think its alot easier to take the shocks completely off the bike and do it or thats the way i have always dne it. i have the HL spring compressor tach weled to table in the shop and it make the job a breeaze to do
