gl1500 swing arm bearing lube???

Post by dingdong » Thu Jul 31, 2014 3:26 pm

Can I lubricate the swing arm bearings without completely removing it? I'm getting ready to replace the u-joint and boot so I will have the arm loose.

Not really.You're already in that deep,so I would pull it apart,wash out the bearings and check them,replace or relube as required.Probably a good Idea to replace the seals one way or the other.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.
