To change the bearings, proceed as follows.

Remove the shims (12) and (9) from the right-hand side of the swingarm (8) and refit the bush (4) from the left-hand side.

Remove the ball bearings (10), sealing rings (5) and roller bearings (6) with a suitable punch and press. Support the swingarm and take care not to damage the bearing bores.

Once removed, the bearings (10), sealing rings (5) and roller bearings (6) must not be reinstalled.

Overhauling the rear swingarm


Heat the entire swingarm up to 150 C while supporting its weight adequately.

Apply recommended grease to the swingarm bearings seat.

Note

Upon reassembly the seals (5) must be oriented so that the plane side is faced outwards and the writings on the roller bearings (6) must be faced up.

Insert the new roller bearings (6) in the punch tool with code 88713.1068 And install them into the bore on the left-hand side of the swingarm, working from the outside.

Drive them in until the tool is fully seated against the swingarm.
