Factory Connection 08 Linkage

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used this and have they noticed any play when moving swingarm up and down?

I recently bought one used from a great guy in NH. He was an expert and he had just replaced al of the bearings.When I installed it on my 08 there was up and down play . You could grasp the rear wheel standing over the seat , lift up on the wheel and there was a huge amount of play before the shock would start resisting.I replaced the bearings again with Pivot Works bearings and a lot of the play was gone , but there is still a little amount of play.When I compare this to my other 08 CRF 450R with stock Linkage , there is no play.Is this normal? wted to see what other people had to say about this and their experiences with their bikes.:thumbsup:

My '08 has less than 10 hours on it and it has a little bit of play. It has the OEM linkage. Everything was lubed when new so I put this down to a normal amount. No way anything is worn on this bike. :thumbsup:
