Swingarm bearings...

Post by curl666 on Sun Jul 02, 2017 10:32 am

Replaced all the bearings on my dads wrf, swingarm, linkage/knuckle and lower shock bearings.

I've still got slight movement on the bearing that bolts the knuckle to the swingarm.

The only thing I can't think of is that the bolt has worn? Anyone else come across this?

Did you replace needle roller bearing and the bush that it runs on?

Yes everything was renewed.

Can see it moving on the bush/bolt when you wiggle the swingarm.

If it was badly worn and you have replaced everything else it must be the bolt.
Or is there movement between the outside of the bush and the alloy.

I'll try replacing the bolt and see how I get on. Me and pops are itching to get back out riding!

There are thrust washers that go either side of the swinging arm bushes to stop end float! Make sure these are in place. Otherwise tightening up the bolt will not lock up the bushes tight. Hope that makes sense...

It should be all in place, replaced everything as it came out and didn't have anything left over. But I'll double check incase one has fallen out during fitting.
