    Fury swing arm pivot/bearing maintenance

    Decided it was time to check the swingarm bearings and grease on my Fury. Pleased to find that everything was tight and smooth. Nice design too. It was an easy job to remove the arm, bearings, clean (pivots, axles and bearings), re-grease and re-assemble. Wrenching on bikes that are designed to be maintained is almost as much fun as riding them. OK not even close, but better than working on bikes with the must return to the dealer for all maintenance design.

    You've got that right.
    I went from latest and greatest to a high forward single pivot, and I'm not looking back.

    Amen for single pivots! I put 13,000 sweet miles on my Proflex Oz (high forward single pivot) with no problems. Coppermine Photo Gallery - Oz Eventually the BB shell started loosening loose from the carbon frame. That was a sad day, but that led me to the Fury.

    2100+ miles on my Fury and counting.
