Front Right Suspension

Just like on the other side, let’s take a look at how the Stroke slots into (and locks into) the Upper Mount:

Step 01

Slide the Coil Spring over this end of the Upper Mount:

Step 02

Slide the Stroke into the open end of the Coil Spring. Align the tab of the Stroke with the slot in the Upper Mount and compress these parts together. Turn the Stroke slightly counterclockwise to lock it into the Upper Mount, trapping the Coil Spring in place:

Step 03

Retrieve the Right Lower Swing Arm assembly from the previous pack.  Slide the forked ends of the Stroke over this section of the Right Lower Swing Arm, aligning the holes:

Secure these together with one FM screw and nut, as shown:

Step 04

Fit this post of the Knuckle Base up into the end of the Right Lower Swing Arm, as shown:

Secure these together with one (1) NM screw. Once fully tightened, it should still be able to rotate slightly.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:


Feels like we have done this before, right? Same steps, different side.
