Hello All. I've run into a bit of a problem.
I just replaced my tires on my '03 750 and after putting on the rear tire I went to tighten up the left shock and the bolt snapped off. There is a little thread left on it and I was able to get the lock washer and nut back on. It is reasonably tight, but I'm taking a long trip next month and I don't want any trouble from the shock while I'm out in the middle of nowhere. I was wondering if there is any way to replace the bolt. It is hard to tell from a glance if the bolt is part of the frame or if I can slide a new one in there.
Any ideas?

The bolt is part of the fraim, you will have to cut it and reweld on a new bolt.
Rember the shock has all of its stress on the vertical not horisontal.
You can try to drill and retap the center and use a bolt not a nut.
Hope this helps
