    Just bought myself a Turner DHR 2006. The frame is custompainted by the previous owner but I wanna paint it back to the original white color. Here's the question, what's the easiest way when it comes to disassembling the frame?

    That posted info is useless for your DHR. There are no bushings on your frame (only on the lighter xc/trail frames).

    The DHR only has 4 bolts that need to be un-done (main pivot, front shock mount, rear linkage, and front linkage bolts) to pull the frame apart.

    Your rear will be ready for paint/powder..you will need to remove the large main pivot bearings from the front triangle..you can either press them out with something, or carefuly tap them out with a drift punch..

    Oh whatever. If he read the info on the link I posted he'd know what I meant.
