Strut bearings/bushings or cutlass bearing
Just a quick post to show wear on a strut/cutlass bearing, shaft wear, and some of the changes MC has made in regards to the replacement bearing. The new one is larger in length and brass material shroud.
Just a reminder to the new owners, have your MC mechanic check your strut for alignment and possible wear per the prescribed maintenance schedule. The pics show the difference between the new and worn part, the third picture depicts the wear on the shaft, and the final pic is an orientation photo for those of us still learning.
A boat load of friends and miles of glass sure play havoc on the summer honey do lists.
