    Swing arm bushes

    Post by Durzer on Tue Jun 15, 2010 10:11 pm

    Got a bit of play on all the linkage system.

    Is it easy to strip for examination or replacement of parts? Do the needle rollers need pressing?
    Rather a bit of advice before I start stripping it and find that special tools are needed.

    If the bearing need to come out/go in keep a hammer well away from them. Those cages are very thin and easily damaged [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] .
    A nice vice and appropriate socket is your friend, or a bit of threaded rod if your doing some on the bike. Plenty of grease on the stuff when it goes back in.
    Check seals also as when they've gone you'll be throwing money away just changing the bearings. Any probs give me a shout [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
