left shock stud

PostAuthor: Cusstout 1100 » Tue Sep 22, 2015 6:16 pm

Working on my project bike today - 2nd gen 750 and had a need to remove the lower left side bottom shock mounting stud located on the final drive. Looking at the on line parts diagrams (there's nothing about this stud in the Clymers or Haynes), it looks like this is a press-in stud. It's's threaded in and can be removed with a stud remover, or possibly locked nuts if you can find a couple thin ones.
Thought I'd share that in case someone else needs to remove that stud; also, it's a "through" hole into the gear case cavity, so needs some thread sealer when it's re-assembled.
