Take it back for them to get that ripple out will only stretch bigger  ::)

Ja, I noticed that but was not sure if it would be a problem.

Thanks, spoke to them and taking it back. They happy to sort it out.

I am sure they will just tension it up.  :thumleft:

Then it went back into its corner.....

You are obviously are unaware of my trademark "its corner".
As we know each other, i will not allow legal proceedings to take place,  this time...
This time,  Kykdaar.
This time...

Looking good Kykdaar. Have you finally decided on the colour scheme, I see white wheels, blue seat, black frame. Just wondering!

Looking good. I actually like the blue and yellow more than the red and white, so I'm excited to see ho this turns out.  :thumleft:

The lower shock mount bearing on my 610 TE was completely dry at 8200 km, but fortunately not damaged. After greasing with Bel Ray I had no more play in the rear suspension. Swingarm bearings were fine, added a bit of grease.

Decided that whilst I am getting ready to assemble the running chassis I will quickly do the swingarm and linkage bearings and seals. After all, it is not all just about the looks.

Swingarm was straight forward and easy.....then I got to the linkage.

Man, whoever designed that rear shock bottom linkage set-up was probably pissed, or stupid, or both. Clearly he never intended that bearing to be ever removed after fitting because he chose to secure each side with oversize circlips (which you need a crowbar to bend) and then designed the bearing flanges so that you cannot get to them in any event. F@rkin idiot.


I did a full write up on this on Cafe Husky (including doing the swing arm bearings) - not sure if you looked at this? Yes I drilled holes to be able to get under the circlips with a pick. Honestly not such a big deal once you get your head around it and real peace of mind to know that it is all good and done properly. This is unfortunately the price you pay in maintenance on a linkage suspension. Did you fit extra seals - this is the answer imho.

Ha Ha  :lol8:  - Yes indeed you read my thread because you used my photographs of the parts! I recognised my finger that has a scar from a NT Cutter running up the side  :o

PS: Thanks BiG DoM for the tutorial before I did this job  :thumleft:
