Rear shock bearing kit

5 posts in this topic

I have used them with no issues.

Cool. Will give it a shot. I see they have them on Motosport.com. Hopefully they do what I need them to and quiet the suspension down.

Before throwing parts at the problem, put the bike on a stand with the rear wheel off the ground, then try to move the rear wheel up and down ans side to side. This could be any one of several issues. Wheel bearings, loose axle, bad shock bearings, bad swingarm bearings, etc.

Will do. I just replaced the wheel bearings, and changed the chain so the axle is not loose, so I can cross those off the list. But will throw it on the stand when I'm done with the motor to see if I can pinpoint the sound before buying parts. I'm pretty convinced it's the shock though. Thanks for the advice!
