removing stearing head lock??
ok long story short. I have a 2000 buell lightning x1. I went out with some buddies and we went downtown to get some food. Needless to say it's busy down there and we have to park at meters. Well as my luck would have it someone parking in the stall next to me hit my bike and knocked it over and left(dam cagers!!).
only a lil bit of cosmetic damage but i had my stearing head lock on and well it wont unlock now. I got it home (thanks AAA ) and finally got it undone by the lil screw on it, but my question is in the manual it says in order to get it out you have to raise the front end and and drop the forks about 1.5 milimeters in order to remove it. First is there any way to get it out easyer or how and what should i use to get the front off the ground?? it seems it would be rather hard to being the shock is right there and my pipes as well, i can take the pipes off but i dont wanna mess with the shock. Maybye im making this harder than it sounds some info would be helpfull, so i dont have to carry this huge log chain aroud ne more.:
