Been trying to get the shock out of my 2017 250sx for an hour...cant do it? anyone have some tips? I did it on my 4 stroke no problem, can't seem to do it on the 2 stroke...
removed silencer
removed linkage bolts, swung linkage out of the way.
shock drops down but will not come out the i need to take off subframe? or main exhaust ? tis should be a 10 minute job, any tips appreciated.

Did you lift up on the rear wheel as you drop it down and pull it out?

You can remove the exhaust and 2 lower subframe bolts and just lift it he subframe a bit.

Remove mud flap or swing out of the way and pull out from there.
