Hiya All

I've fitted the Refurbed Rear Shock to the CBR400!

1 question here though:

Fitting the Rear Shock - should I have greased the Spindles of the Mounting Bolts??

The Bearings were pre greased by MCT suspension. I assumed that was enough.

I didn't want to slack loads of grease anywhere near the mounting bolt threads. I Just cleaned the whole area, the bolts, and the threads, and I carefully appiled Thread lock to the Mounting bolt threads.

My neighbour says not, its the bearing that move, and thats what needed greasing.

Hope you can advise.
