Rear pivot on Sumpy FSR
#1
I treated the stumpy to a new set of Fire XC Pros tonight and gave it a wash to celebrate

Unfortunately whilst cleaning the rear suspension arms near the rear mech I noticed quite a bit of play in the pivot bushing (bearing?)nearest the mech on the RHS  Sad
Has happened recently as Tinc checked them all for me when I bought the frame last November

Not sure whether to go to LBS and get them to change all (cost?) or have a go myself.
Anyone know whats involved / any special tools needed?

Kit doesn't do shock bushes. Just bearings.
We're talking horst pivot here I think - where the chainstay joins the seat stay, right?

Have a look here select FSR manuals & then the year of your bike & download the manual.
There'll be a exploded diagram in there that makes all clear.  Wink

Yes its the Dropout Hurst Pivot (No 6 in the diagram)

I found an kit supplier on ebay a little cheaper <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Specialized-Stumpjumper-bearing-kit-2004-2006-120-/140401917469?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_sportsleisure_cycling_bikeparts_SR&hash=item20b09b3e1d">http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Specialized-Stump ... 20b09b3e1d</a><!-- m -->


I have a little problem in that my frame is an 07 Stumpjumper FSR but neither company list a kit for an 07 Undecided I am wondering if that is because its the same as an 06? I will check the manual to see if it looks the same!

Be careful with the eBay link Abzz. All bearings are not equal & cheap bearings are just that. The eBay place has no reputation to protect or come back if you're not happy.  Once you paid postage you gonna save about £6. That'll soon be eaten if you have to buy another kit 'cause the cheaper ones don't last.

On terms of the bike year the diagrams for each year will provide bearing numbers. Just comare those of an 06 Fsr with say an 08 & I'm sure you'll soon tell what's what.

If that makes no sense let me know & i'll have a look Wink

+1 dont go for cheap bearings.. BETD are arguably the best. Let me know the kit number & I'll get you a price from BETD & see if we can save you some cash

While you are asking Blayne - could you find out what discount you can get on a Whyte quad link kit?  The same kit should fit all years bikes and is £60 on Tinc's link
