Rear Shock Replacement - 996

I'm soon going to be replacing the rear shock on my 1999 996 Bip. I have replaced the rear shock on both my VFR800 and my Fireblade in the past with no issues at all.

I would say i was very competent when it came to working on my bikes, but i would like some information on anything that i should be aware of or do/not do when i replacing it. I know that there is a ride height adjuster on my bike so is there anything that i need to take into account regarding this when i do it?

Any hints or tips would be very much appreciated.

cheers
Simon

Start off expecting the bottom mount to be seized and you should be OK

Do you mean the shock mount or ride height adjuster?

the lower bolt passes through both of them
Although I have had a few jobs unseizing Rideheight adjusters, sometimes I've had to scrap them and find a replacement, which isn't hard
