    Uzzi VP, newer swing arm - crush tube?

    I have a early Uzzi VP with a replacement swingarm after the original one cracked in the usual place.

    Just changing the bearings, and there's no crush tube between the lower bearings in the swingarm. Should there be?

    (It's worked fine for the last year or so, since I got the new swingarm, without one - just wondering)

    Cheers,

    Jon

    They originally put the crush tubes in the early models to reduce the amount of grease and direct it toward the bearings. Later they decided they weren't necessary at all and left them out. Short story, it's not required.

    no more crush tubes in new frames
