Need help with replacing Swing Arm

I need help with replacing my swing arm from start to finish on my 08 CBR. If anyone has any insight to the task, it would be very much appreciated thanks.

Nose forward at a 130 mph, taking 90 degree turns at 70 mph plus, sounds like a good day to me!

Swing arm removal is pretty straight forward if you're mechanically inclined. You do need the castle nut tool like the fellow above stated. Once you get that bolt out and disconnect the shock, remove the wheel and brake caliper and it should slip right out. Removing the wheel first would be easier obviously.

Grab a bolt from the hardware store that fits the allen head. Take two nuts on the bolt and tighten them together. Viola! Instant swingarm tool for about $3.
