How do you disassemble this link though? To replace the inevitable bushings or bearings that will go bad.

You mean, routine annual maintenance :wink:

I’m sure its not hard undoing a few bolts :slight_smile:

check that instagram link above. it shows the compartment cover to access the shock.

Shock installation and removal, as well as access to the adjusters, is via a toolless port at the base of the down tube that is fixed in place with a rotating catch.

I think the upper link must be a two piece ordeal that you have to unbolt and separate, although they reference extra sealing on the bearings, so maybe they don’t expect you to disassemble.

I’m not thinking about the lower shock access, more talking about the upper link.

Perhaps though the sag port also allows you to have access to the shock mount on the upper link as well(?)

(I’ve been burned before with shock linkages that wear out or loosen, hence my somewhat odd obsession with how everything is maintained)

Wasn’t expecting it be that slack. But, I’m on board.

The top end is already going that way but it’s interesting the RC comes base at 120 mm of travel.

Though now we’ll probably have to wait like a year for one to become available :frowning:

Yeah, anybody remotely serious about wanting one of these better beat a path to their dealer TODAY and see about orders/availability. If it’s like anything else right now, the preorders will go quickly. Anyone not locking one in will be waiting on luck, which is not a great place to be this year.

That is an excellent solution to the same problem I was thinking of as well.

Exactly, I’ll be contacting my dealer tomorrow, see what’s what.

That RC Pro is looking slick!
