Swingarm Bearing, Sleeve Inspection and Lubrication
CAUTION
Do not remove the bearings for inspection. Remove
may damage them.
.
Check the ball bearing.
OSince the ball bearing is made to extremely close toler-
ances, the wear must be judged by feel rather than mea-
surement.
.
Turn [A] the bearing in the swingarm back and forth while
checking for plays, roughness, or binding. If bearing play,
roughness, or binding is found, replace the bearing.
.
The rollers in a needle bearing normally wear very little,
and wear is difficult to measure.
Instead of measuring,
inspect the bearing in the swingarm for abrasion, color
change, or other damage.
* If there is any doubt as to the condition of any of the nee-
dle bearings or sleeve, replace the sleeve, and needle
bearings as a set.
.
Apply grease to the inner surfaces of the swingarm bear-
ing in accordance with the Periodic Maintenance Chart.
OFor the swingarm bearing, it is grease nipple [A] on the
swingarm for lubrication.
Force grease into the nipple
until it comes out at both sides of the swingarm, and wipe
off any excess.
Chain Slider Inspection
.
Visually inspect the chain slider.
* Replace the chain slider if it shows any signs of abnormal
wear or damage.
