How To Service The Shock Linkage On Your 1997 to 2001 Honda CR250 Start with your bike on a stand with the subframe and shock absorber removed. I removed the rear wheel for video purposes, but you do not need to. Linkage Removal: Remove the lower chain roller to make room for the frame side bolt.
Before you start stripping the swingarm, remove the swingarm pivot bolt. You may need to lay your bike on its side and beat the bolt out with a sledgehammer, and that’s easier to do with the rear wheel still on. Once you get the pivot bolt out, replace it just enough to keep the swingarm attached.
