    No. But you will need to fab one up to get everything torqued back when you put it back together.

    I just did this last month, you do need a special socket for the lock nut I paid $108 at a bike shop unless you make one.
    But its very easy once you remove all the nuts,rod, and brake lines. Takes like 20 mins

    I went out and bought a large socket, and made one myself. $5 at True Value! I can't remember off the top of my head what size it was, but I just used a cutoff wheel and grinder and removed all the material between the 4 fingers.

    Yup I did the same to get my swingarm off. A dremel with a cutting wheel will make the cuts on the socket fairly easy. It took about 15 minutes.
    Good luck! :up:
