farmerger's post #27
in this thread has a good picture of the referenced bolt under step 2, which is a great visual aid.
I expect to be going through this process again with my bike probably January 2013ish, hope to be at the 115k-120k mile point by then and looking forward to see what I encounter different from the first time at 68k miles. I figured at that time I'd do a major edit/update on my original post in this thread with more and better pictures and text. For ease of reading/condensing into one area I was thinking of including lots of the other suggestions and tips contributed by others in the thread, so I'll see how that goes.
Thanks again for all of the additional info and feedback everyone.
