    Thanks for the great insight guys! Did my RSU bearings on the 2017SE today. Bike at 10k miles and recent purchase. Dealer did most of the 10k service.
    All bearings seemed to have a light coat of oily grease and in decent shape. The front drag bolt would not release enough to drop the drag link due to the center stand even after moving it to the right side and leaving the sleeve out so the bolt could be angled. So the sidestand balance worked out best to swap in a temporary shorter bolt so the CS could be used for safety. Thanks again

    Just rung them as I have been noticing the patch on floor after last couple of trips out.
    Very helpfull and are happy to take on the TTSE repair/ refurb.
    Usually turn them around in a week and asked for the WHOLE unit to be taken to them and they fully check/ test unit on completion.
    Guestimate 250 sometimes a bit more if anything extra needs changing.

    Thanks for the timely(for me) input H2nra.

    Pity their isn't a refurb'd spare to do exchange.
    Anyone have a complete old unit to see if they would use to hold as an exchange unit ... for forum members.

    There will be from the 2nd week 2023 when i replace mine with a new one

    Quick question before I start the replacement, do I need to remove the faring and the fuel tank to access the top of the rear shock
    Thanks

    Sorry to hear of this. 

    Not a job I have had to tackle ( yet ! ),
    but according to the Service Manual, it isn't too difficult a job.

    Bike on the Centre stand, disconnect the Battery,
    and place a block to support the Rear Brake disc.

    Remove the Drag and Drop Links from the lower RSU mounting,
    Right Hand Side panel, and Right hand "Control Plate" ( Footrest hanger plate ) are removed.
    TES Power Control Module removed after noting the RSU wiring harness routing,
    Fir Tree clip removed, TES Power Control Module bracket removed,
    TES Motor detached from bracket, then bracket removed,
    Upper RSU mounting nut and bolt removed ( new Nut required on refitting ),
    Carefully manoeuvre the RSU and motor down through the swinging arm
    noting the harness and hydraulic hose routing, and taking care
    not to damage the Swinging Arm as it is withdrawn.

    Cheers  :821:




    Where is the top of the rear shock hiding have followed above instructions but can't find it
    Help !!

    Hi again,

    This isn't a job I've had to do on my Trophy yet.

    According to the Service Manual you don't have to remove the Fuel Tank
    to be able to remove the Rear Suspension Unit ( RSU ), but if you refer to the
    following Photograph, taken after removal of the fuel tank, where you can see
    the top of the RSU - and how much easier it would be to access the top Nut & Bolt,
    than trying to fiddle around to get at it from underneath :



    If you send me a Private Message with your personal email address, I can send some more information  :028:

    Cheers  :821:

    And perhaps the gas tank could be just tilted up a bit and not completely removed ?   Although the small side tank hoses might have to be removed anyway to even tilt the tank up .....

    But I like the idea of getting to the upper RSU mounting bolt from above instead of from below.  Sometimes even a little more time & work pays-off in dealing with a lot less hassle.
