I can change the CS on my bike in approx 10 minutes. I'd like to see you remove the rear wheel, swing arm pivot shaft, drop the swing arm, change the CS and re-install everyrhing in under an hour! Not familiar with the rear suspension of this bike but removal of a swing arm usually entails removing the rear shock too! Good luck!
