Cogent shocks arrived! Rebuild linkage and swingarm bearings or just grease them?
My Cogent Moab Ultimate Pro rear shock and complete DDC kit arrived today. It was due on Monday. So yay!
I can put the rear on relatively easily over a 3 or 4 day weekend I have coming up. As I値l be removing the tire, I値l also be taking the time to service the swingarm & linkage, but it occurred to me that maybe it might be a good idea to also replace the bearings in the swingarm and linkage. My 2009 has 14,000 miles on it. And the All Balls bearing kits are not that expensive. So replace them or just grease them? What would you do?
FWIW, the front is going to wait until Thanksgiving as I知 going to completely rebuild the forks with new bushings and seals. Probably replace the steering bearings too while I知 at it.
Thanksgiving is my projected time to remove the engine for my disassembly and ship out the parts for the machine work. I値l finish the rebuild over Christmas and use the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas to install a fuse block and wiring for lights, dash, etc. since the gas tank will be off with all the plastic too.
