Disassembly / Installation Procedure
1.)Begin by loosening the lug nuts on both front tires. Raise the unit, using a suitable lifting device or procedure, until the front tires are off the ground. If using a floor jack with stands, chock the rear wheels to prevent the unit from rolling. If using jack stands, make sure the stands are placed under the frame and not the body. Make sure the unit is stable and secure.
2.)Remove the tires / wheels.
NOTE: Now is a good time to check the threads on the lug studs. Check for rust, pulled threads or other deterioration that could cause a stud/thread failure.
NOTE: Make sure shock adjusters are at their lowest setting. When reinstalling the shocks you may have to use a pry bar to compress the shock and coil depending on how new the bike is and the condition of the coil.
3.)Remove contents from Bag #1. Start with the front, on the passengers (right as you sit on the bike) side, remove the wheel and the top bolt holding the shock to the frame, loosen bottom bolt allowing you to pull the shock out and away from the upper mount. Repeat these steps on other side. Next slide the # 01-7500 along rear outside of factory channel (x-member). Place a sleeve in the x-member and using a 10x60mm bolt, going from rear to front. Install the supplied link and spacer on the inside of the factory x-member. Start a flange nut on the bolt. Move the shock into position and install supplied bolt thru the Xtreme brackets and shock rear to front. It may be necessary to install washers between the shock and the supplied brackets. Proceed to other side.

5.) Raise the unit, using a suitable lifting device or procedure, until the rear of the bike is off the ground. If using a floor jack with stands, chock the front wheels to prevent the unit from rolling. If using jack stands, make sure the stands are placed under the frame and not the body. Make sure it is stable and secure, place jack under rear axle, you will need to be able to raise and lower the rear axle without the rest of the bike moving.
Assembly of Bag #2. It is not necessary for the wheels to be removed for the rear brackets but you may find it easier with the wheels removed. Removing the mounting bolts for the muffler will make installation easier.
NOTE: There are two brackets for the rear. One of them is designed to clear the frame support braces. The straight one goes to the front of the factory x-member.
6.)Place the brackets on each side of the factory x-member, making sure the brackets are phased properly. Take one of the 10x60mm bolts and insert it thru the bracket on the inner hole on one end. Hold the sleeve in place inside the factory mount. Go thru the sleeve and out the front of the factory bracket thru the other supplied bracket.
(You may install these bolts front to rear or rear to front.) Install one of the 10mm flange nuts. Install the opposite side bolt, installing the sleeve as you did on the other side.
