    Suspension Bushing service?

    Hey, Kona owner here. Asking this in the Turner forum because I haven't gotten very many responses elsewhere and I understand that at least the Turner iterations immediately prior to the DW link stuff used bushings in the rear triangle.

    Pretty simple question. I am about the replace the bushings on my Faux Flux and have no idea where to start. Could any of you Turner owners who have done this in the past share your tools and techniques with me? Thanks.

    Turner website?

    I'm not quite clear what bike you are trying to service, but the Turner website had information on how to service the bushings in their bikes.
    Good luck.

    Enduro makes a bearing kit for Konas. Does this help?

    Similar enough for my taste. Basically I'm looking for a starting point on the Kona King Kikapu frame (that would be the bike). Basic tools and techniques for getting little plastic cylinders in and out of slightly larger holes can't be that different, I figure.


    How do you guys go about it?
