Question for the collective: How does one remove the spring from the shock assembly on these bikes? The locking collars cannot be backed entirely off the shock as they can on the CRF230F. Looks like you'd have to unscrew the clevis. But how does one do that? Or am I missing something obvious?

Note: Interesting feature on these shocks ... the locking collar threads are not machined into the shock body itself. They are machined into a collar kept from rotating on the shock body with dogteeth. Almost as though the shock can be used for multiple models by just using a different collar.

See the pictures below ....
