    I'm sure I'd found a supplier for all the bearings and seals on the rear suspension linkage - but seems I've forgotten where I saw them - anyone else have a supplier for the full kit?

    Wemoto are my first port of call for SC58 spare parts

    Hunters motorcycles are my second port of call for a cost comparison

    Thanks for the quick reply - I can only see the one shock bottom bearing and seal kit on wemoto. Nothing in that area listed on Hunters either.  Thinking of getting the whole lot ready and do it all in one shot (whether it needs them or not) for peace of mind so no need to worry about them next year,  They've likely never been touched since new at 34k and I've done 10-12 of those over the past 4 years (it's not my only bike).

    If it ain't broke...

    At 34,000 miles I'd expect bearings to be fine. I got my 2006 in 2014 with 8,000 miles on the clock. It's now clocked just over 70,000 miles and the rear end bearings, shock, link arm, swing arm, rear wheel and hub are all original and remain very serviceable. I have had to replace the front wheel bearings (slinky glide) at the 60,000 mile service because they'd become notchy and more recently I replaced the steering stem bearings which were found to be notchy and an Advisory on the November 2023 MOT
