    Ventana pivots Maintenance?

    I have a 07 Salt that I just want to go over with a fine tooth comb after the weekend ride. I kept hearing a sound I cant find when I stop and try and duplicate. I dont know if its the pivots but I have to be sure they are lubed and set correctly so I need just a little help with removing them and inspecting for any damage or just to be sure they are lubed correctly. All replys will be helpful. Pics would be better....thanks.

    I had a similiar sound this weekend.....it was the wear surface between the shock (DU Bushing) and the Ventana shock spacer. At first, I actually thought it was the shock. These bushings are designed to run dry in a clean environment.....somewhat counter to mtn bike, eh! So I just worked in a little chain lube....perfect.
