If you had removed them, apply recommended grease on the threads of the adjusters (4) and the ring nuts (3) having care not to have grease on the surface (c) of the adjusters.

Tighten the adjusters on the ring nut side opposite to that featuring flats until bringing the surfaces as close as possible as shown.

Refitting the shock absorber support


Start (form the external side of the support) the adjusters (4) in the bushes on the support.

Tighten the adjusters (4) to a torque of 0.6 Nm +/- 10% (sect. 3 - 3, Frame torque settings).

Note

If at the specified torque the adjusters should not tighten properly, maybe the support or the adjusters could be nonconforming.

Loosen the adjusters (4) until bringing the surfaces as close as possible to the internal profiles of the support bushes.

Insert the bush (6) to keep the components in place.

Refitting the shock absorber support


On the right side, insert a suitable centring pin (u2) on the front adjuster (4) and a suitable centring pin (u3) on the rear adjuster (4), making sure that the pin hexagons fit properly into the hexagon sockets of the adjusters.

Refitting the shock absorber support


Tighten the screws (l) and (h) to a torque of 7 nm +/- 10% (sect. 3 - 3, Frame torque settings), by following the sequence 1-2 -3.

Refitting the shock absorber support


On the right side, extract the front centring pin (u2).

Tighten the front adjuster (4) to a torque of 0.6 Nm +/- 10% (sect. 3 - 3, Frame torque settings) and then make sure it is fully home on the crankcase.

Refitting the shock absorber support


Again on the right side, refit the front centring pin (u2) making sure that the pin hexagon fits properly into the hexagon socket of the adjuster.

Extract the rear centring pin (u3).

Refitting the shock absorber support


On the right side, insert the rear centring pin (u3) from the internal side of the crankcase, placing a suitable spacer (v1) between crankcase and rh rear suspension support bracket (s).

Tighten the rear adjuster (4) to a torque of 0.6 Nm +/- 10% (sect. 3 - 3, Frame torque settings) and then make sure it is fully home on the bracket (s).

Refitting the shock absorber support


On the right side, extract the rear centring pin (u3) from the internal side and refit it on the outside, while keeping the right spacer (v1) in place.

Warning

Make sure that the pin hexagon fits properly into the hexagon socket of the adjuster.

Locate service tool no. 88713.3166 On the front ring nut (3) and fit the torque wrench to the tool. Tighten the front ring nut (3) of the front adjuster to a torque of 100 nm +/- 5% (sect. 3 - 3, Frame torque settings) while holding the adjuster using centring pin (u2).

Tighten the front screw (2) to a torque of 45 nm +/- 10% (sect. 3 - 3, Frame torque settings).

Tighten the rear screw (2) to a torque of 45 nm +/- 10% (sect. 3- 3, Frame torque settings) while holding the nut (35).

Refitting the shock absorber support


On the left side, tighten the screws (l) to a torque of 45 nm +/- 10% (sect. 3 - 3, Frame torque settings), by following the sequence 1-2.

Then tighten the screw (h) securing the side stand plate to the shock absorber support to a torque of 45 nm +/- 10% (sect. 3 - 3, Frame torque settings).

Extract the centring pin (u1).

Refitting the shock absorber support


Insert the centring pin (u1) from the internal side of the crankcase, placing a suitable spacer (v2) between crankcase and rear left suspension support bracket (s).

On the left side, tighten the adjuster (36) to a torque of 0.6 Nm +/- 10% (sect. 3 - 3, Frame torque settings) and then make sure it is fully home on the rear left suspension support bracket (s).
