    Servicing the linkage question.

    Hi Gang,

    I need to service the linkage on the TTSE.

    What are the best practices for supporting the bike while doing this?

    Thanks All!

    Whenever I work in that area, I place the TTSE on the center stand. On some occasions I also put the odd wood on it.

    Will the center stand block access to the bolts?

    Not with the help of woods and a hydraulic car jack, since the center stand can be moved freely or removed. I also remember that I tied the bike so that it never moved while I was working.

    Within this Lengthy Topic I posted a Video that helps to explain
    how to dismantle the Drag Link at its forward end :

    Drag Link failure - rear suspension assembly

    Scroll to my post dated 2nd December 2020.

    Note that to remove that forward bolt when on the Centre Stand,
    the bolt needs to have been inserted from the RIGHT side of the Bike,
    with its Nut on the LEFT side of the Bike, so that the bolt can be withdrawn
    sufficiently to remove the Link, as shown in the video.

    If the Bolt is installed the other way around, there are further explanations
    within the Forum of putting the bike on the Side Stand and knocking a bar,
    or rod of the same diameter as the bolt through to push the bolt out,
    ( leaving the bar in its place to support everything ), then pushing the bolt
    back through from the other side to displace the temporary bar.

    The Trophy can then be placed on the centre stand and the job carried out as in the above video.

    Cheers  :821:

    Try this on for size regarding flipping the bolt.  In fact, this is the next item I'm going to perform on my TTSE.
