I have a 97 cr250 and i pulled the wheel of and noticed their was a lot of play in the swing arm up and down what does this mean (upper or lower) linkage bearings or swing arm bearings?

Most likely it's the linkage bearings and upper shock mount bearing, but it could be the swing arm pivot bearings too. The bike is now 16 years old, have they ever been replaced? Might be worth pulling it all apart and replacing everything.
