While doing my routine maintenance checks on the bike, I noticed that the bottom bearing of the rear schock has a bit of up and down play. I took it apart and sure enough the assembly is full of dirt and rust. Seems that the seals aren't doing much. I went to the Yamaha dealer nearby and the replacement cost for two seals, the needle bearing assly and the center bushing come to $80.00 cdn. Do any of you had to replace this part ? Can we find the replacement parts at bearing shops or is it only a dealer item ? The replacement cost for such small item is outragous . It's a rip off but we don't have much choice. Sorry for the outcry, it made me feel better to take it out !
