rear shock uninstall/install - bike on kickstand
So the rear shock on my KLR 650 decided to leak out all it's oil, etc. Probably because the previous owner didn't ride it for at least 2 years (and probably not much use before that either).
Also, I'm a big boy and was probably killing it.
So, I'm going to send the shock out to Top Gun Motorcycles for a 8kg spring and rebuild.
Here's my question:
I'm hiring a mobile mechanic to come out to remove the shock, and reinstall it when it's returned. Can the bike stay up on the kickstand during that time while the shock is out for repair (probably a week or so)?
