    Speaking of Pivots, bolts and things

    What is the established procedure for disasembling the pivot joints? What interval should they be serviced { I know to a degree that depends on riding frequency and intensity}. Is Lithium grease an adequate lubricant for the bushings?

    We recommend checking pivots before each ride and tightening as necessary.

    I recommend Finish Line grease for pivot maintenance. Additionally, we recommend use of blue locktite on all pivot and shock bolts.
