Default Shock removal

Any tips or trips for removing the track shocks on an Indy XC 850? Put on 4000+ miles last winter and want to have them refreshed up before the snow flies. Would rather not learn from trial and error.

Thanks

Definitely pull the skid out it will make the job very easy and take some pictures before you take the shocks out. Honestly it’s very simple.

You're right, removing the skid was pretty simple, loosen the track and removing the 4 bolts holding the skid did the trick.
