Just bought the Allballsracing upper and lower direction bearing kit from a french seller : 31,40 euro delivered ! Great ! Will be here end of this week .
Ah, ok.Neither 390 variant uses bearings at the swingarm pivot. Instead, a set of inner and outer bushings is fitted at each side.
That could certainly be arranged- hope to have the Flying Nun on the road next week. Since my ancestors are Scots- perhaps Ya could tell me how to sneak a haggis past the TSA?If the label is in indecipherable Gaelic, it has to be mysteriously good! Wish I could taste it, Kinky!
Looks like the bearings are caged, upper and lower, if the parts manual fiche is accurate.Will loosening the yoke top bolt and adjuster allow adequate exposure to the bearings to inject some grease, or is total disassembly necessary? Are the balls loose, or enclosed in cages? Don't want to play "52-pickup" with a bunch of steel BB's in the shop, 'specially with all the "Black Holes" that seem to swallow up dropped screws, springs, and miscellaneous other bits that fall from time to time... ;-)
