So my buddies ball joint actually broke on him, luckily he had just slowed down and was turning into his driveway. Surprisingly there is not a lot of info on replacing the ball joint, this bike is totally foreign to me as I am a Yamaha Guy ;) By the looks of it this is going to be a Biotch to change out. My question is can this be done with the strut on the bike or does the whole thing have to come off.

it can be done with the strut on the bike. The problem is going to be pulling out the remainder of the ball joint out of the strut. I'm assuming the ball portion pulled out and all that your left with is the cup inside the strut. This has happened to me in the past. Hopefully you are a welder. what will have to happen is you will have to weld a bolt to the cup and then use the bolt as a puller to get the cup out of the strut. heating the strut will help as well.
Since this happened to me I always changed them out before this happened. good luck

If the ball is not there to create back pressure the grease will just fall on the floor. Otherwise that almost always works.
If the ball is gone I usually split the outside diameter of the housing in 2 or 3 places with a diamond bit in a rotary tool and it pretty much slides right out with a little poking
