Linkage bushings?

Recommended Posts

I just turned over 3100 miles today and when I got home I did some after ride cleaning/inspection. While on the center stand I noticed play in the linkage.
 
By pulling straight up on the wheel I was able to feel the play and I located it being the smallish linkage dog bones.
 
I'll prob just bring it in to the dealer to fix under warranty.
 
But go check your bikes, anyone else have similar play?

I just checked mine due to your caution, and luckily mine are tight and do not move. I hope it is a simple matter of tightening the bolts! Let us know what you find out and I would check every bolt for snugness if I was in your shoes just in case (just took my own advice and did that to mine).

Yea I checked and my bolts are tight. Bearing/bushing must be bad
Interesting. Keep us informed on what the dealer says.
