    PUSH Linkage Bushings

    My main pivot bushings were definitely tighter than the other pivots with respect to fitting the pivot shaft. I small amount of bushing material was "shaved" off when pressing the shaft in.

    How do I get my 5.Spot to work

    This is where I got the idea. Maybe I need to contact Greg to send me another pivot shaft that might be a bit narrower.

    Any chance you guys are going to turn a few more of these bushing kits? My Main and DW link are clapped out and in need of replacement ASAP.

    I threw a set on my RFX a few years back. They were dunzo in about six months. Ended up putting the original Turner bushings back in and they have been running perfectly ever since. I don't doubt that they have less friction but the softness of the PTX did not lend itself to longevity.

    Wow, 6 months? Mine lasted about 3. Went back to stock as well but they dont last as long as I would like.

    I've been able to get nearly 2 years out of the multiple sets I've owned as well. Make sure you guys follow PUSH's torque spec for reassembly. It's lower than the stock Turner delrin spec. It's a fantastic upgrade imo.

    How often are you guys riding your bikes to get that much use out of them? I ride a min of 8 hours a week on my spot...plus I weight 200lbs...im sure that effects the wear a bit.

    I get about 6-8 months out of the Main and DW bushings before they get clapped out, this is with good maintenance too. Riding about 40 miles week MTB, weighing in at 225# ish.


    BTW, nice original avatar Velo_1....
