    Replacing the linkage bearings

    I have purchased the Enduro bearings for my SL-R for a change as I usually buy the whole linkage including bearings. I intend doing the job myself as I feel I’m mechanically competent in other areas that it can’t be that hard a job.

    I have lots of tools including a Park Tools headset press. (bit overkill I think?) Could anyone help me by suggesting the correct tool or tools I will need to do the job of removing and replacing the bearings correctly.

    In an idea world I’m looking for a step by step guide or recorded a video doing the job.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for that, much appreciated.

    Its on page 30 and for those who want to know the answer without looking its:

    For the Mojo, SL & SL-R:
    • Lower link front = 6902
    • Lower link back = 6900
    • Upper link = 608


    The HD has different fittings.

    This thread is pretty much the granddaddy. I added some photos a few years back, and have used the same principles on the Mojo.

    Canuck Tacoma, I ordered from RWS.

    I tried going to a commercial bearing shop to pick up a couple sets but they couldn't source the angular contact ones.

    I have "ghetto-illy" removed and replaced mine with a piece of threaded rod, washers, two bolts and different sized sockets. Worked fine.

    The only issue was that one that I replaced in the lower link was not a tight fit. I read that someone else had run into the same issue and Ibis recommended loc-tite to keep it solid.
