Did you see my photos though? The rear shock is not coming out easy. I managed to remove the top bolt but the rear links have what I believe are 4 metal ´seals´ (from bike bandit diagram) and Ive had a pretty solid grip on them with the vise grips and have been rocking the bike up and down from ripping on the seals.. and nothing will budge at all.
Im not entirely sure I know what you mean by is the long bolt removed? I had to fight the long swingarm pivot bolt for several days to finally get it out yesterday...
**EDIT: just compared the diagram to my bike in the garage, yes the long bolt labeled 33032 ´shaft-swing arm´ is what I was referring to and it has been removed after quite a fight.
