should this have play?

Recommended Posts

take your rear wheel off and then lift the swingarm up and down...should there be a little play when you do this? its coming from the bottom shock linkage part....i put new bearings there but it still does it...i never noticed it before..also if you grab the gas resevoir on the shock right side can u move the shock left and right?

:thumbsup:

I just got my sons 07 250f, and before i even started it i greased the steering stem, the swingarm, shock, pull rods ..these bikes come with almost no grease, grease them now to save some big bucks later on the bearings...

Play is OK for the shock. NOT OK for the swingarm. Need to check the bushings & bearings. Side to side play on a swingarm will make for poor handling and eventually end you up on your rear as you go down the track.
