    swing arm bearings and rear shock bearing change

    Post by Clarky_two on Sun Jan 03, 2016 9:38 pm

    Looking to do a bit of maintenance in the new year, change the rear shock bearing and swing arm bearings... are there any kits out there? which should I go for - or avoid? I dont want to be doing it again in a few months.

    Any tips?

    I bought all genuine for my last swingarm kit but the shock bearing I got from pro action and it's a really good quality replacement!
