Siince I was in there for the swingarm bolt, I figured I would do some maintenance and re-springing on the rear suspension. I pulled the rear linkage and the shock off the bike:

It is always important to spring the rear for your weight. I got an 12.0 spring from Eibach:

....and found Les from LT Racing (, who has a couple XRs, one that is really trick and one that is absurdly so. He has links to them on his website, click here. Several people recommended him so I sent the shock to him to revalve for my weight.

Cleaned up a bit, and of course always, always, always pack things up with grease:

Swingarm back on:

And suspension linkage:
