ah, have it!
I thought the collar went right through the mounts as well but it doesn't, a bit of a wiggle and it came out.
All linkage bearings are cleaned and regressed, all are fine.
Now I just need a picture of the assembled parts as I am unsure which direction the bolts face  anyone got a picture of an assembled linkage handy?
The shock looks a lot fresher now.
Thanks for all the help! :047:

I found top shock bolt in from left best.  The other four bolts at the bottom don't really matter which way round they are.

Thanks folks, I got it all back together no problems.
I will have a go at the hub bearing maintenance at the weekend, that will have her ready for the post-covid freedom  :046:
Stay safe.

I've recently done this job, it's pretty straight forward, decent pair of circlip pliers are needed but otherwise everyday tools will do.

There's a washer on the inner of the hub, if it's the same as mine it sticks to the hub when you slide it off and is easy to miss as it's covered it grease and dirt. Mine fell off as I put it on my bench, if it had fallen off on the way over I could easily have missed it and would never have known.. although I do like to check the parts diagram when re-assembling..

The offending washer can been seen in this photo, resting on the hub..

Brilliant. I also found a video on YouTube of this procedure and I must say the guy did a great job on the production of the video, made it look pretty simple.
The hardest bit is getting the bike up on stands as I have no center-stand :015:
Thank you!

Hi folks,
I got the hub service complete yesterday. That brake caliper is so awkward :020:
Anyway no real problems. I did find some strange marks on the shaft at the left side bearing but only one one side of the shaft, it cleaned up well enough with some very find emery paper. Has anyone else come by anything like this? The bike has 18Kkm on it.

Think I did, but nowhere near as bad, thats the bearing spinning on the shaft in it?
