Need Rear Shock Linkage ASAP

Recommended Posts

So I was going to install my new pivot works bearings and all the nuts and hardware were seized on the rear shock linkage. Where can I find aftermarket or OEM. I am hoping to find tonight and overnight it so I can do a hair scramble this weekend. Please help.

Did you use a breaker bar or impact gun? If you break the nuts and bolts separating those are easy to get and replace. Getting another linkage is a much more expensive option. I would try breaking all those parts off and just replacing the bearings,sleeves and bolts.

Excellent case of a thorough race preparation I'd say.

If it seized you can kiss your competition good bye to do a nice job with all bearing at hand you'll need about 3 hours. Seized and rusted away bearing cases will make that an endeavor of 10 to 15 hours. I remember working on my bike trying to loosen the engine mount at the frame which was seized. 3 days it took me to make it work.

If the hardware is seized, won't you still need to remove it before you would be able to put a new linkage on?
