    Help! Loose main pivot on Heckler

    Can any of you guys help me out here? My main pivot bolt seems to loosen itself out on absolutely every ride I've done for the last three weeks. I notice when the back-end gets sloppy.

    Will a little locktite on the threads do the trick, or is something out of adjustment that may be causing this?

    Also, I was wondering about the proper procedure for reassembling & re-greasing the main pivot & the shock bushings. The main sticking point for me is what order to tighten the bolts for the main pivot and exactly where to apply the new grease.

    Thanks

    Here's a link to the tech sheet for your bike located on Santa Cruz's website. It will help you re-build the pivot. And yes, you will need some locktite.

    After clicking the link go to Details>Tech Sheet
