    Service handbook 2005 RM Slayer 70?

    I am looking to learn how to overhaul the bearings/bushings on my trail bike. The shop I bought the bike has not been very helpful, and RM does not accept e-mails.
    Does anybody know about an online site that have the electronic version of this service manual?

    Just take them apart & start cleaning & lubing.

    There's not much to it. Undo all the pivot bolts, and pull everything apart. Clean everything. Lightly grease any bushings. If bearings have play in them, replace 'em. There's no need to buy RM's pivot kit- they'll all be very standard bearings that you can get at a hardware store for a few bucks. If bearings don't have play, but are gritty feeling, gently pry the seal off with a pin, and fill them with new grease.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll try and do that later this summer, from the replies it seems I will not be able to break anything (?) by following these procedures

    Usually disassembly is the worst part because the lube may not have been enough so pivots are seized. Most cases they unseize relatively easy. Lay the bolts out on a shop towel the way you pull them.
