    Banshee Rune suspension play

    So I swapped all the bearings on my frame and linkage this morning.
    There was no previous play in the suspension but the bearings were obviously done. Now that it is all back together there is slight up and down movement that I can't get out. Everything is torqued to spec....
    Anyone else ever have this problem?

    Checked the bushings of the shock? CC bushings tend to give up early...

    My Cane Creek pushings had play after ~10.000 vertical m of downhill *g*

    I haven't been so lucky like you... rode 2 Legends and 2 Runes and I had to change bushings really early on all of them.

    Lucky? 10.000 vertical Meters. That's like two days in a bike park or ~10 bike rides at home.

    Ha! Gotcha. I have to ride quite a bit around here to get 10.000 vertical meters. I think the bushings lasted ~ 10 rides, which would make up for like 3000 vertical meters.

    I am accord with the above. It's most likely your shock bushings. If you have a Cane Creek definitely score their bushings from your dealer.

    I am now closing on two years with my Rune V2. I've replaced the bearings several times and changed out the shock bushings once. Despite the bike having mulitiple pivots it is pretty simple and inexpensive to maintain. The bearing location that takes the most abuse is the lower link frame pivot. If it is not torqued down properly it will wear out quickly. Checking this (and the other pivots) torque before each ride has helped out a ton.

    All in all it's a fantastic bike.

    My spit needs heavy torque on the linkage bolts, and develop play after some rides...

    Man I ate through Fox bushings pretty fast and they always gave me play. My Rune has seen 2 seasons of riding with no bearing changes. I have them and was going to do them last season but I checked them all and they spun free. I'm really good at taking care of my bike though.
