Remove seat
Remove right side panel
Remove silencer
loosen rear carb clamp
Remove 3 subframe bolts, remove subframe
Remove 2 shock bolts, remove shock

Take the opportunity to clean the carb and clean out your airbox and airboot.

I always just loosened the bottom subframe bolts and tilted it back against the wheel. you can leave the silencer on as well, it should just slip out.

Yep, you don’t even have to pull the subframe. It’s been a few years but I think you can also pull the bottom 2 bolts, loosen the long one up top, and flip it forward? Bottom line it’s super easy to get out

Out of curiosity, why are you running 120mm of sag?

I don't want to run that. I want 100-105 mm but its still on the stock spring. I weigh 200lb street clothes. I need a heavier spring to get it in the correct ball park. The 120 mm (gear on) on the stock spring is about as good as I could get trying to reach a happy medium and with that 120 mm the free sag is only at 20mmm!! Yep way off! Soon I'm shipping both ends off to Enzo for spring swap and re-vavle.
