The Dreaded 12k Serive - Back-End Overhaul
« on: October 06, 2020, 11:58:21 AM »
Having dismantled the whole of the back-end and re-greased the swinging arm and suspension bearings, all that remains is to re-install the re-balanced back wheel and then install the new engine sprocket and chain.

Hopefully, collect the new valve shims later so that I can then put the engine top-end back together!

I grease my rear suspension every year, I find it satisfying, plus I can deep clean the engine etc :152:

Other people also re-grease the swinging arm bolt every year to avoid it corroding against the bearing sleeves. If it seizes on the sleeves, it can be almost impossible to extract - had this problem on a Honda and ended up having to remove the swinging arm with an angle grinder which was a bit painful!

Strange that the swinging arm bearing is not part of the service schedule, but I do mine anyway. :084:

I 99% sure about this fact

In the service schedule, I am sure that 'rear suspension' is intended to include the swinging arm bearings as well as linkage bearings.

Back-end overhaul was finished off today after installing new engine sprocket and then riveting a new chain into place. Overhaul, this part of the service was pretty straightforward without any real difficulties. In fact, the only challenge proved to be bolting the Nissin rear calliper back in place while making sure the pads seated properly - I came to the conclusion that this was not the best designed calliper in the world!

The pads are easy to remove and install with the calliper in place, once the pin is out they drop down from the in situ calliper and re installing is just as simple. Just have to make sure that as you put them back in that they slot in correctly at the top of the calliper.

I think my difficulties were due to the retaining clip being slightly bent making it difficult for the inner pad to seat properly. I'm used to callipers where you fit the pads before bolting the calliper on to the bike.
