    Default St4s ride height adjuster

    Hi all, first question!! 😁 Just got my replacement ride height adjuster for my st4s, as mine is completely solid. Works perfectly well, threads are free and we'll greased. I managed to undo the top bolt on mine no problems, and I managed to undo the bottom bolt fairly easily. However, for everything I've tried, I can't get the bottom of the adjuster out of the swingarm! I tried levering it, knocking it with a drift and hammer, pushing it, pulling it, twisting it, raising and lowering the swingarm with the top bolt back in place, and it just won't budge. I'm pretty certain I got the bolt out far enough, as the head of the bolt was almost at the hole on the swingarm. I didn't want to go any further incase it came out from the shock. Any ideas on how I can get it out! Thanks! 😁

    Just an update, I managed to get the adjuster swapped over today. I ended up having to completely remove the bolt and drop the swingarm down, then get a lever under the rod and lever it out. It was in very very tight! However the new one dropped straight into place so I'm guessing the other one was just corroded in place. I've put about 10mm onto the length of the rod, and then tightened everything up. I didn't get chance to try it out tonight but I'll take it to work in the morning and test it out. Fingers crossed I can notice the difference! ��
