I just cleaned and greased my linkage for the first time last night (about 10-15 hours on the bike). Good thing I did, one of the dust seals where the linkage attaches to the swing arm was all folded up on one side. Has anyone else had this happen (I'm wondering if it left the factory like this)? Anyway, there has got to be a better way to do this! Do you guys have any tips? Does anyone tear it down, put it in a bucket of solvent to clean it and then regrease and reassemble? Will this hurth the aluminum or rubber parts? Thanks!
