I've been the happy owner of a used 575 for about a week now. The first couple rides were tough, as the drivetrain was skipping all over the place, but I replaced the cassette (as the chain and chainrings were new) and now the drivetrain runs smoothly. Everything else on the bike is mostly blingy.
But, there is a bit of sound coming from the main pivot area. Doesn't sound like a creak, (like metal to metal), but it certainly isn't quiet. I figured, as the bike was not mine, I might as well make sure that the main pivot is well packed with grease and put together correctly.
Does anyone have any tips (or resources) for rebuilding and maintaining the main pivot? Thanks.
I might as well add: There is also some noise coming from the almost-new Vanilla R fork. I'm going over to the shocks thread to ask over there.
