Assembling Rear Shock Absorber

Assembly of the rear shock absorber is essentially the reverse order of disassembly.

1966 and Earlier (Fig. 2F-37):

Apply a thin coat of grease to the cam sleeve (12) and cam surface of spring rotating cam (11 and 11 A), and slip cam over cam sleeve (12). Position cam support (6) over lower cam with appropriate slot. On 1964 and earlier models, slot marked A" is for left side assembly, and slot marked "B" is for right side assembly. Either slot can be used on 1965 and later models.

Extend absorber piston rod and slip split bumper (7) over rod. Slide spring (9) into cover (8), and shock absorber into spring. Turn assembly over and rap upper mounting stud eye on surface to seat bumper in flange.

Place dirt seal washers (14) and dirt seal (13) into cover (8). Position assembly of cam support (6), lower cam (10), rotating cam (11 or 11A), and cam sleeve (12) over absorber. Compress spring in tool, as shown in Fig. 2F-38, and turn lower mounting stud eye 90° to register with notch in cam support. On 1964 and earlier models, assemble unit to motorcycle so letters "A" and "B" are facing rearward. On later models, shock can be installed with eye in any position.

Apply a thin coat of grease to all surfaces of both cams. Note that cams (12) are identical and be sure to position cam lobes correctly as shown in Fig.
