How much does the tool cost to remove the rear bolt on the back of the REV suspension. I received mine not to long ago, and I plan on studding the track. However I noticed the rear bolt is inverted and needs a special tool.

Speaking of studding. I heard the tunnell protector kits require the seat to be removed so you can put in the rivets. I also heard conflicting stories about the gas tank. Some say you have to take it off, and others said you won't have to because it takes 4 hours to remove the tank.

Has anyone been under the rear suspension and have some good tips for studding?

Jbird, what bolt on the back of the suspension? Lots of bolts back there.

Gas tank should come off so you dont hit it with a drill bit. It does not take 4 hours to take it off. I did mine in about 1/2 hour. The next time I do it will probably take 20min

The bolt I was speaking of is the rear skid frame bolt to drop out the suspension. Sorry if I wasn't clear before.

Nice pic, looks like you did a lot of work. Glad to see the guts of the sled.

After you took the seat off, was it pretty straight forward removing the tank. I am looking for some helpfull hints when I get under there. I am just waiting to get the tunnell protectors so I can start the studding process. I haven't tore it apart yet because I figured i would make one big job out of it.
