So far I've sourced a gaiter (from a good used ball joint) and heated the nut above the Telelever arm to break the locking compound. Once the nut is loose, lifting the bike under the engine allows the joint to slide through the Telelever arm. What I'm wondering about doing is, with a support under the engine and the front wheel just off the ground, removing the front suspension unit lower mounting bolt, removing the nut on the joint, then lifting the Telelever arm clear. What I don't know is whether the entire front end will fall apart when I do this as the weight of the forks and wheel will be hanging from the top steering head bearing. I'm also concerned about over-extending the fork legs. Has anyone tried this undoubtedly non-approved method?
