Creaking rear end


Recommended Posts

Finished replacing the swing arm bushes and a new spindle. All greased up and no more creaking.

The rivets for the chain guide were 5mm x 20mm with an extra large head, in case anyone else wants to know.

Also, the parts diagram for my 2014 Racing showed a nylon washer that sits in the frame around the head of the swinging arm spindle. Mine didn't have one when I removed it so ordered a new one. When it arrived it didn't fit. Checked the parts diagram for a 2015 Racing and there's no longer a washer listed so I guess they amended the frame slightly to make the spindle a snug fit? Presume mine was a late 2014 and that was changed too. Odd.
