Tried to follow the above link, but it sends me to a weird random site ☹️.
Any ideas?

Brian,

Any idea which will have a longer service life, the bush kit or the bearing ?

Cheers

Hi Dan

I don't think anyone has had the bush kit fitted long enough to wear one out! The only parts that might wear would be the poly bushing and I am sure Steve would sort you out with a cheap replacement for those if you needed them

Dan

The new rear shock you ordered, comes with a new top bearing and collars, they really are a bargain https://totallyttrs.com/epages/699105d9-e4cc-4b32-b236-84e72cd67f84.sf/en_GB/?ObjectID=8898060

Brilliant! Exactly what I had hoped! Considering the price of a refurb I thought the unit wasn't a bad price!

It was on speaking to the MOT guy that I established the "play" I noticed was within tolerances for a TTR..still I ordered a full kit from Steve & adopted the "prevention is better than cure" approach

Another excellent "how to" Brian & Steve.
Thank you- straight forward fix...and then onto the lower bushes...then I think it's sand blasting/powdercoating the frame.
