    New question here. I have an old 01 Dakar Expert frame. Do I need to replace bushings?

    The bike is fine, no problems but I'm asking because I've been hearing about people replacing bushings and bearings on other bikes, but I've never replaced anything related to the linkage on this frame. Just want to make sure I'm not neglecting anything. I've been riding the bike for 5 years now and all I've done was tighten up the linkage parts here and there. I've never opened the big pivot before - are there bearings that should be replaced in there?

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I've been riding my Dakar since 1997 and have never had to replace the bushings. Once a year, I apply some Boeshield oil to them and that's it. These things are fairly bulletproof.
