    Buy a manual for every bike you own!
    READ it! this stuff is not hard to do.
    If you have room to sit down,next to your bike,
    and a socket set.


    You have room to work on it! :)

    TROOF!

    I once installed a 1" bodylift on a Jeep Wrangler...using a Hi-Lift jack, some 2x4s, and basic handtools...in the street in front of my apartment. Working on most bikes is much easier.

    I don't like parking nice bikes outside/on the street long-term though, especially in bad weather like a salt-ridden Chicago winter. I leave that kind of abuse to well-worn bikes.
