    Looks to be a pretty crap setup on the linkages .... both sets had wear marks where things dont stay inline ... shite design Triumph :commando:

    Bearings on the stock linkage had no roller cage so the rollers just fell out while trying to clean the solid grease out

    So out they came and new ones ordered ..... bearing shop had to hunt them down as they wernt listed .... a 2008 motorcycle with rare bearings? ... another good one Triumph :headbang:

    Ill have both sets ready to go so if I cant throw my wooden leg over the tail with the stock height I can just lower it again :cool:

    Rear shock is currently at the suspension shop for a grease and oil change :aggressive:

    At least they still had grease in them and were not rusted.
