shock removal

Time to re-spring the shock and forks to accommodate my formidable mass.

Any tricks to getting the shock off the bike? I'd like to avoid any unnecessary component removal if possible.
Thanks!

Once you determine that the CDI unit is bad, if you're feeling really brave you can crack it open. If you are lucky you will see a bad solder joint causing the failure.

He's headed to the KTM dealer. Those are his "trade-ins" for an even-Steven deal on one of those 350 hot rods like Jon's.
