Swingarm Bearings

2 posts in this topic

I seen in the FAQ page that you could clean your swingarm bearings with alcohol, is that rubbing alcohol? I've used diesel fuel in the past, but that stuff stinks so bad, I would like to use something else. Also what is the best grease to use or easiest? Should I buy stuff that it is in a tube or tub?

I have always used Brake parts cleaner and then a good waterproof grease like bellray or Slick 50 grease witrh PTFE. The swingarm bearings in my 99 have been cleaned and relubed every 6 months since new and they are still going strong.

Bonzai :cry:
