swingarm ain't swinging
I got the front tire off, put a couple old small tires under the forks, strapped the forks to the center stand, took the adjusting nut off the brake arm, took the nut off the lower arm that holds the brake in place, and removed the lower shock nuts, pulled off the shocks, and the swing arms only dropped about 1/2" the suspension moves freely when I'm on it, but for the life of me, I can't figure out why the tire won't drop far enough for me to take the axle out. The tire is about 5" above the ground, so there is nothing stopping it there. What am I missing? Do I need to remove something else? Do I have a bigger problem? Should I just attempt to remove the exhaust like the manual suggests?
