Uni-Trak Link Pivot Check (KLX650A)
• Check the pivot of the swingarm and uni-trak link (tie-rod and rocker
arm) for wear periodically, or whenever excessive play is suspected
(see Swingarm Pivot Check).
• A small amount of play on the pivot is normal and no corrective action
is needed. However, if excessive play is felt, check the swingarm, and
uni-trak link bearings for wear, and replace them if necessary (see this
chapter).
Rocker Arm/Tie-Rod Bearing Inspection
• T h e rollers in a needle bearing normally wear very little, and wear is
difficult to measure. Instead of measuring, inspect the bearing installed
for abrasion, color change, or other damage.
•k If there is any doubt as to the condition of any of the needle bearings,
replace all the sleeves, and needle bearings as a set.
