WOW ... Saved myself from certain injury !!

Recommended Posts

Was in garage taking apart my suspension on my 96 kx 250 to clean etc and found the lower shock bolt all the way out only held in by susp linkage :smirk:... OMG the head of the bolt wore a perfect half inch indent from rubbing / resting on the dog bone linkage piece for the past 2 mths as i jumped 50 ft tables etc :awww::banana:

Must have been limiting the susp travel a TON ... and every time i landed hard it must have been DIGGING into the aluminum linkage piece !? WOW LUCKY CATCH !

I went thru most susp linkage when i got it from PO ... i cant believe i missed that :bonk::bonk: i always locktite everything so i must have missed it somehow !? I pulled the linkage from the swingarm and the lower shock bolt FELL out !!!!!!!! Cant believe it wore such a deep hole in the linkage dogbone piece ... almost halfway thru it !!

Pays to do COMPLETE maintenance / check-up often :busted:
