dont forget about getting a new master chain link. You're going to have to cut the chain off, unless they sold you the swing arm with a chain on it.

a) tube of bearing grease
b) rubber gloves
c) you'll need a "special" tool to remove the nuts, but a flat head will do.
d) see if you can find a manual online here. GSXR manuals in PDF
e) Master link as previously mentioned

its not very difficult.

almost all bikes the chain goes thru the swing arm....
I didnt take a pic of me swaping out my swing arm..but this is the after. with new shock installed also..





These pics i took might help with the strap down, but I didnt take pics while i was changing the swing arm. its not hard like stated.

you will need something to remove the master link on your current swing arm and then the tool to put the new link back on.
I use a grinding wheel and a screw driver to remove.
The tool to press the new one back on has been mention many times on this site and some of them have been passed around for loan like a $2 whore!

I doubt it is the same size as our chains but do a search on here for people looking for the tool and I bet they will loan you one. I have one but I can't get to it right now.

a) jack Sears jack $119

b) Bearing grease from advanced auto

c) dremel tool/hacksaw or grinder will remove the chain. Putting the chain back on depends on the type of master link you bought (or are going to buy) there is press-on and there is clip on. I personally use clip on and never had an issue, no special tool required.

Thats a motorcycle jack/lift I got from Harbor Freight. I forget how much but it was pretty cheap. (less than $90).

I used the ratchet tie down straps and she was solid. I had to change everything but the frame and motor and it was a piece of cake using this.

It basically can break it and put one together.
I never use the breaker.
To put one together it goes around the chain and when you put the side clip on it spreads the rivet to hold the side cover on.
