- Yeti 575 rear shock removal
Any ideas on how to remove the shock from a yeti 575, 2010? Easy enough removing the linkage end but frame mount fairly well stuck.
Allen bolt removed from one side.. other end just spins but can’t shift it. Any tips?Posted 10 months ago
I’ve not got that bike but can’t it be gently drifted out?Posted 10 months ago
Gave it a bit of a tap but nothing shifted.. not sure whether I need a special tool or just a bit more brute force

Which part of the linkage?
I did a detailed instruction doc back in the day.. let me post the link…
Drop us a message if it doesn’t help.
I’m guessing you mean step 10 in the doc. The front shock mount:
Usually is a case of partly removing the bolt (driveside) and hitting the bolt with a hammer to drive the pin out. I’ve used longer bolts with the same thread to screw in to give a better bond on the pin.Posted 10 months ago
Try supporting the weight of the bike too so it’s not putting pressure on the linkage.Posted 10 months ago
As DezB says – thread a longer spare bolt (might be M6 I think on my 2011 575) and tap the titanium pin through. There is an official Fox ‘pin guide’ but a longer threaded bolt does the same job.Posted 10 months ago
Thanks all the tips.. really appreciated!
DezB – that’s an impressive set of instructions! and yes step 10 is the one I’m stuck at – front shock mount.
Will give it a go tomorrow and let you know how I get onPosted 10 months ago
