    Rear lower arm bearings modified

    Because I ride a lot gravel roads and offroad, I was tired to change bearings for rear suspension  :789:
    I decided for small modification.
    Original there is one 20x26x20 needle bearing and 4,5mm sealings, but there is enough space left. So my solution: 2x 14x26x20 bearings and 4mm sealings. I don't know if it works and helps, will they hold longer... But after first ride on gravel,  annoying noise is gone and feels more stable.

    It will be interesting for me had someone the same experience  :784:

    Hello Agrais,

    Interested to hear how this modification is going ?

    If it's still looking good, can you advise where you got the new bearings and seals please ?

    Bye for now.

    Hey.
    Now Its about 3000km looks ok and  I can't feel any  rattle or "bad noises"  :001: 
    Let's see at the end of this season...

    Just look in some store for bearings seals and other specific stuff. I recommend to talk with sales manager, explain what you need, for what and do not buy in internet. I bought bearings manufactured in Russia, they are made form more severe conditions.
