Default Help with a Yamaha yz80?

ok so last night i was working on putting a new shock on my 80, but we took it out and found out that the new shock wouldnt fit so we decided to put it back on, but now the shock wont even fit its to big, and it looks like the swing arm isnt in the right position and its not going into the right position. so i need some help trying to figure out what i can do to put the shock back in the bick and make it fit so i can ride again any idea's?

You could try to take the rear swing arm bolt out and let it off of the bike. then mount the shock and try re mounting the swing arm with the shock already on.

The rear end has collapsed (as if you went over a jump and the shock bottomed out).Lift up the"sub frame"(the part of the frame that the seat bolts to).The frame will move up and the swingarm will pivot down, extending the distance between the upper and lower shock mounts.

Default yz80 shock

try looking at the lower attatch point and make sure it didnt flip over. this will cause the shock that you took off to appear to be about 3 inches too long
