Remove the exhaust pipes from under the frame by these bolts. After removing the single top bolt and loosen the two on the clamp the exhaust will slide out.

At this point I'll place the bike on the center stand and secure a strap around the stand and around the engine guard to keep the bike from falling over while starting to remove the rear end assembley.

To remove the fuel tank remove the four bolts from the front and back of the fuel cell. Remove the lines and disconnect the electrical wires.

After removing the fuel tank it's starting to look pretty sad!!



From this point you can't go back. It starts to get fun now, the cutting is about to start soon.

Shock removal from under the seat. Remove the oil line from the shock. Make sure you have lower the shock first all the way to lowest point. I took the upper bolt loose from the frame that holds the swing arm up. Then removed the upper and lower shock bolts.

After removing shock the swing arm bolts can be taken out by the two allen bolts on each side. I'll want to save these due to using them again for the chevy rearend.
