I'm looking for some new needles for the linkage in my KX250F. Are there any good aftermarket solutions are is OEM the way to go? I should have replaced them last time but I didn't feel like waiting for them.
Which is better Pivot Works or All Balls?
That's the main reason I just want new needles, as I don't know how much longer I'll have this bike. But I'm just going to get new bearings and do it right.If there is wear on the needle bearing needles the whole unit needs replacing. I would place a bet that here is wear on the central collar and/or the outer bearing race. Yes, they are a pain to remove and install.
Now if you lost some of the needles, I think you are out of luck. Usually the outer race comes with the set of needles. I'm not aware of being able to buy just a single needle.
