Straight forward installation. took the slack out of the rear suspension. feels like the rear end is behaving like it is supposed to now.

Product is AWESOME !!!!! The product came just as described no missing parts shipment was fast shipped same day as I ordered and communication with Motosport.com was EXALLENT!! email notifications on time as well I am ordering other products from Motosport.com with no hesitation Plus came with stickers !!!!!
After 50 hours I removed the linkage for its second serviceing and found that the bearing cups/bushings had crumbled or cracked. This allowed the edge of the races to deform and crack also. The races were installed to manufacture's depth specs and torque. This problem has been reported in reviews on other sites.
The all Balls linkage bearing kit is all inclusive and COMPLETE. Once installed you will think you have a new bike. The suspension will move much easier and smoother. The kit comes with everything you need and is pretty easy to install.
In order to keep the needle bearings from coming apart during installation add a little grease to each one and take your time.
The bearings looked to of great quality and were straight forward to install with the right tools. Had a few of the pins fall out during install, so use a clean shop towel under the service area, so you can put them back in if necessary.
Good product ,
They fit perfectly just as if they came directly from Honda , they were easy to install , they work well.
Should have some instructions with it
Good fit comes with everything except upper shock bearing.
Great product very durable
After I got all my old bearings out, putting these in was simple and easy.
I recently installed this kit on my 00 xr100. Everything fit well and went together smoothly. I will continue to purchase All Balls products for all of my rides.
Kit Had everything i needed . washers , spacers, bearings and seals .
Just add Grease !
As i was opening the bag to one of the smaller needle bearings i had noticed that they were at an angle inside the cage and i was hoping it was just a illusion but i barely touched one with my finger and it came apart. Then i went through the rest of the bearings and had noticed they were already loose inside the plastic bag they are packaged in. If you are planning on riding within a day or two of replacing your bearings don't rely on all balls stick with OEM.
Very nice product! Great quality parts and fit. I have installed pivot works bearings and these are a little nicer, the dust seals are better for sure. I plan to use these from now on.
All Balls stuff - Fantastic as always. Everything you need is there, it will all fit perfectly ( or it does on my Yamaha ) and perform great.
This kit included everything I needed unlike the Pivot Works kit that I had to return since they don't include the spacers in this particular kit. All Balls included the spacers, everything to completely rebuild it.
I'm a rookie. I can only speak for installation - it was a breeze. I haven't ridden yet. I used vice and sockets and a beer(s) to uninstall and install. Both went without a hitch. Probably because I put aside full day for it - no rushing makes for fun and easy installation. Also I did prospect oem but couldn't find 05 anymore so was forced to aftermarket oem.
Ready to install and seems to be good quality
If you do periodical maintenance, at least once a year, Any linkage bearing will last for life.
