Hi All, I’ve just had to replace the swing arm pivot bearings of my 1992 900ss for the MOT.
While I had the swingarm off the bike I cleaned it up and found it to be cracked. The crack was hidden by the white nylon chain rubbing block, copious old chain lube and sh**e. Once cleaned up the crack was visible running around the inside and part way across top and bottom. This doesn’t seem to be one of the ‘usual’ places they crack (according to various web sites I’ve read).
Anyone had a similar problem?
Is it weldable?
Might be worth checking yours next time you get the chance!
The bike has not been abused and has only done 11,000 from new.
