    Bearings/bushings for '05 Switch?

    Anyone know how to order a bearing set for an '05 Switch? Its been 2 years and I've got creaking going on.

    You could contact Enduro about buying their MAX bearings. They don't build a bearing kit for the Switch, but they have a big selection of the bearings. The bearing numbers or sizes might be visible on the bearings, or they may have a list of the ones you need.

    Any of the IGUS bushings are likely easiest to get through a Rocky dealer.

    You may be able to address the creaking just by removing the pivot bolts and applying a bit of grease at the metal to metal contact points and putting it back together.

    The other really likely place to find a creak is at the shock bushings and reducers.

    I've lubed everything and I'm still getting a creak. I'm pretty sure its bearing related - and even if its not, I think 2 years is a good time to go through the bike and replace this stuff. Honestly I don't feel any stiction in the suspension and I don't feel any rough spots when I cycle the suspension without the shock.

    Thanks for the info!
