Rear Shock Removal

Is it necessary to remove the fuel tank for rear shock removal or does it drop out of the bottom. Need to have the rear shock serviced and re-installed. Thanks.

You don't have to remove the fuel tank.

I remember unbolting the tank and lifting the rear of it a couple of inches, maybe to make room for the subframe to pivot up? I know I didn't remove the tank but did have to move it a bit. I guess you'll see when you get there.

I plan to do this this week. I'll post an update. Surprised no one has posted a detailed DIY.
