lube on suspension links

Recommended Posts

I've heard alot about yamaha not putting enough lube on all the suspension links so i called yamaha and they assured me that it is not true, that there is plenty of lube on all the links...well i thought i would challange yamaha and find out for myself...i have a 01 wr426, i have done the complete rear suspension links and there was not enought lube on all the bolts and bearings, when i pulled it all apart there was alittle but not enough so i encourage all you out there is to pull your bike apart and check for yourself, now all i have left is the front bearings...Just thought you should know

Yep, I agree totally.

Make sure you do the steering head. I did everything but the steering head, and they notched up and destroyed themselves very quickly!

HI ALL

YESTERDAY I TOOK THE SWINGARM/SHOCK LINKAGE

OUT, AND TO MY HORROR FOUND LITTLE GREASE

ON ANY BEARINGS/BUSHES ETC.

I ONLY DONE THIS AS I WAS GETTING BORED BUT

I'M GLAD I DID.

IT COULD BE MY OWN FAULT THOUGH AS I ALWAYS

USE A POWER WASHER AFTER RIDES . SOME WATER WAS PRESENT IN THE SWINGARM BEARINGS.

ANYWAY ALL BACK TOGEATHER NOW .
