I'm not worked on a Sprint, but I take it it's the old M14F bolt trick again . . . :speechless:

All 1050 ST's aren't the same then ? 30


Just a thought, wasn't the drag link changed under a recall ?
Mine doesn't look like the one in the pics.:smile:

andreas, no thats on the the drop link, im struggling with the drag link, the alloy lump underneath,"bowl of mice" reckons it pulls out, but mine is stuck fast.

Rob, i think the recall was up to 07, mine has'nt got the spacers mentioned, or the hollowed shape as pictured, its the same as the one in "bowl of mice":thumbup:

Mine's an '06 and the drag link looks the same as the bowl of mice ( wtf did he come up with a name like that ? 03 ) pics.

fwiw it was changed Sept 2009, by memory, the original looked like the one in the manual

Bigun,

Have you removed the long bolt with the torx head?

Have you screwed in the 14mm bolt to pull the spindle out?

If not, I have a home-made puller I can lend you.

If the spindle has corroded, it is a twat of a job:sad: Basically, you are trying to pull a rusted (and hence bigger) spindle through 2 roller races on its way out. I stripped 2 14mm bolts trying to do this the first time.


Having waited 2 years for my first suspension links rebuild, and really struggled to remove the components, I now do it every 12 months.

What is perhaps easier, though considerably more brutal is simply to remove the swingarm from the bike, turn it upside down and cut through the spindle / drag link with an angle grinder. Since you will probably have to renew most of the components anyway, you aren't causing too much extra damage, and may well be saving tons of time.

chris, thanks for input, but its not the one with the 14mm thread, that one is out(home made slide hammer). its the one on the drag link , where it attaches to the frame. all the rest have come out fine, and little corrosion compared with some shown here. saying that the bike is only 3 1/2 years old.:thumbup:

thats what i figured , the "bowl of mice"link says it pulls out which has thrown me. it is tucked away inside the frame so is difficult to tap out. will have another bash tomorrow.:thumbup:

It won't pull out while the drag link is in the frame. It is the same id as the holes in the frame. It will pull out once the drag link is removed though...

The drag link will pull out from between the two lugs on the frame.

Once the drag link is out, you can remove the sleeve :thumbup:

done it , thanks chris.49 drag link needed persuading out with a mallet. it threw me that the bolt head is countersunk.looking through the lugs it looks like the sleeve goes all the way through , but it is only sleeved in the link itself, (which explains why it would'nt knock out:blush:). so all going back now. :smile:

reading this again chris, i realise now that i had misread what you said. when you said "there is a sleeve in the centre of this one", i thought you meant right the way through, but you meant in the centre of the drag link. i was trying to knock a sleeve out of the full length of the lugs and drag link.:blush: hope this clears it up for anyone else doing this job.
