It's that time again to take apart the rear suspension and re-grease it. My question is what socket sizes are needed to take it apart and any special tools or make sure you have this xxxx before you start tips? The last time I torn it down was at a buddy's shop who had all the right tools, but this time I'm doing it at home and my tool collection isn't quite as good as his.

Thanks for your help

You will need two 22mm sockets for the swingarm to linkage bolt, and a 22mm wrench for the linkage to frame bolt.

Oh, and you might be able to use 7/8" if that is all you have.
