I’ve ordered a new shock for bike and I’m expecting 4 - 6 week wait. My swingarm and knuckle need to be inspected for grease.

Do I wait til shock comes before grease feasta, so making it easier to install shock OR is it easy enough to fit the shock down the track and get the grease happening asap. Bike (new to me) isn’t ridden much ATM

Thanks

Do it all at the same time. A few weeks won't make any difference.

That's funny, I just ordered a new rear shock as well, but i did it yesterday. Very Happy
I expect that "4-6 weeks" to be closer to 2 or 3 months, but I can wait.

Hi FL what sorta weight are you? I’m a bit chubby @ 110kg kitted up (240lb) . I’ve gone for a Wilber’s so it’ll be interesting to see the outcome.

210 without gear. That's how AF1 in Texas wants the weight information for ordering the Matris shock.
I put Wilbers on my 2010 BMW GSA when I had it, and it was SO much better.
