Yesterday I finally got round to stripping down and regreasing the rear suspension.
Fortunately nothing was dry and rusted.
The rear shock cylinder was pitted from road gravel being thrown onto it.
As it happens I recently read the thread on rear huggers and saw that someone had suggested the same solution that I used on my
900 Cagiva Elefant. A rubber skirt. I pop rivetted it in place with a strip of flat aluminium bar on the inside to hold the rubber in place.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I also didn't like that the rear caliper was held in place with two bolts that were originally secured with some form of loctite.
I replaced them with two stainless steel socket head bolts drilled to take locking wire.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
