    older iDrive frame: dissassembly pics of main suspension pivot?

    Does anyone have any photos, or possibly a service manual in PDF format they can post for dissassemly of the main suspension pivot for a GT iDrive frame, from late 90's, early 2000's (generation 1 I think). I have a GT XCR-4000 with the eccentric type iDrive.

    Dissassembly of the iDrive itself was easy. I would like to view photos before I take apart the main swingarm pivot.

    Jorgito,thank you for the response.

    I went through all your old posts, and could not find the photos in question.

    I did find this thread: http://forums.mtbr.com/gt/i-drive-pi....html#poststop

    but that covers the newer iDrive than what I have. I had found that thread previously in a search, before starting this thread.

    During my searching I found a post that linked to a place to buy pivot and even eccentric bearing parts. GT i Drive Spares : Mountain bikes and componets by BETD Goldtec

    I also found in that same post, a PDF that shows a blurry drawing of the pivot of a GT dissassembled.

    Got an old iDrive? Need eccentric spares?

    but no photos.

    My GT resembles this one (I'm not sure of the exact year of my frame)

    hey, I'm not sure if its because I'm new to the forums, and I realize there are other threads on this, responding to the most recent, but I can not get the pictures to come up for the link to the Older I-drive sealed bearing pivot Maintenance pics.

    I have the old team version Idrive, been sitting nicely in my garage for several years, and it's time to get off my fat @ss, and get back in the saddle. need some help with any maintenance that I should do to the eccentric. I guess I'm SOL on finding replacement bearings.

    I'm 99% certain, those will fit the "regular" idrives, the team, race and marathon version's are sealed bearings, if I could see those pic's I'd know for sure, lol, I believe I have a set of those in my garage to, I purchased some spare parts, while GT was being acquired by Pacific, back in the day.
