**HELP** Storm Link Install!!!

6 posts in this topic

How do I get the sleeve through the bearings? It seems like it hits the edge of the bearings.

Try:

Apply some grease to the bearings (I know you did that already) and rotate the sleeve as you insert it.

Yeah, I coated it in grease. If you look through the link you can see the edges of the bearings sticking up a little. The sleeve will go in with a few gentle taps with a rubber mallet, but then it's so tight you can't turn the collar on the bearings.

I called Storm Cycles and left a message.

I did the link on my 03 -

are you having trouble taking the stock link off or putting the new one on?

If diassmbling - sleeve slips right out or it is binding

sleeve slips right into the Storm - are you sure you were shipped a 03-15 link?

Stock one came off, no problem. I can't get the sleeve through the bearings of the Storm Link.

I will talk to Mike (from Storm) tomorrow. We'll get this straightened out
