Rear shock installation question
« on: Oct 14, 2017, 19:15:08 »
First build, first post!

Iím rebuilding and customizing an Ď83 Suzuki GS650, and ordered some rear shocks from Ikon. When installing them, the metal sleeve in the eyelet at the bottom of the right shock is about 2mm too wide to fit in the mount on the swing arm. Am I better to grind down the sleeve or spread the mount? Thanks in advance!

Modify the bushing not the bike.

The left one fits?
If one fits, one of them is bent. Figure out which one and go from there.

Whichever doesn't match needs to match.

Ground down the bushing and it worked like a charm. Thanks to all!
