    DHR Maintenance

    Hi Y'all!

    It's time to replace the bushings on my 2001 DHR (man I love this bike!). I read the bushing replacement page on Turner's website, and have searched here. The Turner info is good and detailed, but looks like it is not for the DHR. Is the process the same?

    Any tricks, or extra things to be careful about?

    thanks,

    Chris
    Ride.

    Geez.....

    Thanks for the replies! The response was overwhelming!

    You all never seem to get sick of oohing and ahhing over another 5-snot, but if someone asks a REAL QUESTION, absolutely nothing?

    I shoulda bought a Specialized.

    I guess most DHR riders were out riding this long weekend

    First DHR's don't use busings! They have those compression washers in between the links and main pivots, but no bushings per say. Are those the ones you want to replace?

    OOPS, Sorry!

    Hey, sorry about the spew. I was just feeling left out in the cold! I am an Aussie living in Japan, so I didn't realise it was a long w/e.

    I wanna replace whatever has worn out and made the rear end all "wiggly". My shop here calls them bushings, so I thought that's what they were. The good news is that my shop knows Turners and this bike in particular, so I think I will get the right parts, just with a wrong name (language barrier).

    thanks for your reply!

    No worries Chris. Hope your bike shop can take care of you.

    when I had my 03 DHR I changed those washers once. The top ones (on the links) were easy...the ones on the main pivot is a different story. You have to scrape them off, clean everything up (since they are glued on there), then use Super Glue Gel an affix the new one to either the swingarm or main frame - can't remember.

    If in doubt...maybe e-mail Turner?

    Good luck

    thanks dude

    Can I call you Dude?

    I will take it slow and easy with doing this, rainy season is gonna start here soon, anyway!

    BTW, why did you write about your '03 in the past tense? I hope it was because you are now riding the '04!

    May your trail always head downhill,

    Chris
    Ride.

    you can call me whatever you want! hahaha...

    that was a typo Chris! I meant to say 02 DHR and not 03. Last year I was on a V10, and now on 04 DHR.
