Quality bearings and seal. Note that is does NOT come with upper shock bearing. Also does not come with the 6 outer washers that the seals ride on.

A worn rear suspension linkage can lead to poor handling and suspension action. But, with Pivot Works you can restore that like new feeling with just one complete kit.
- Each linkage / shock kit contains the lower shock bearing and every O.E. quality bearing, seal, pin and collar you need to rebuild your shock linkage.
- Includes Chevron Starplex EP lubricating grease to ease installation.
- Backed by a lifetime replacement offer
This linkage kit was a perfectly fitting replacement for my 06 KX. It was simple to press the bearings in and then slide the bushings right in. I was VERY surprised that they came with PivotWorks lifetime replacement program, in which PivotWorks will provide the owner of a kit with a new kit, once the useful life of the original kit has expired as a result of normal wear and tear (subject to conditions).
Linkage bearings in kit were to small. 01 KX205 linkage bearings should be approx. 22mm in diameter these were much smaller.
I PRCHASED THIS SET OF BEARINGS AND ROLLERS FOR A 2004 KX125. THEY WORK WELL AND INSTALL OK, AND PERFORM GREAT. I WOULD HAVE TO SAY THOUGH THAT ONE OF THE SLIDER/SPACERS THAT GO'S BETWEEN THE BEARINGS WAS NOT AN EXACT FIT. ONE SLIDER WAS 1/8 OF AND INCH TOO LONG AND NEEDED TO BE SHAVED DOWN TO BE MADE TO FIT BETTER WITH THE METAL OUTTER SEALS. THIS IS NOT A FACTORY PRODUCT SO I GUESS THE SIZE NOT BEING PERFECT IS ACCEPTABLE. OVER ALL A GOOD PRODUCT THOUGH. HAVING THE RIGHT TOOLS ARE VERY IMPORTANT FOR THIS JOB. GET A LARGE VISE.
Used these for years. Top quality and comes with a warranty.
everything fit just like oem. works great!
Overall good product. Only negative is it does not include top shock bearing.
very good product. the only bad thing is no instructions. you would need a vice clamp and a socket to press them out and in. turned out to be a breeze.
I have used Pivot Works suspension bearings in several bikes. The most recent being an RM125. Bearings are sized correctly and install easily with the correct tools.
The Bearings are good quality and fit correctly. But beware that you will need a blind bearing puller for the dog bone linkage on some models mine was for an 08 RMZ 450
Hi performance product, excellent results after installation
Everything went together as it should. Can't comment on durability or performance because I haven't taken it out yet but as far as fit and ease of ordering it was pretty straightforward.
They show the top shock bearing in the picture - it's not in the kit.
The bearings are thin and weak, they are easily distorted during installation. There are no instructions - which I don't necessarily need, but some kind of reference is appropriate for a kit with over a dozen parts in it. I'll go OEM over these next time.
I have these installed on crf250x, for about 5 rides now. But have been wet rides, involving snow. Linkage has been underwater in near freezing temps and so far the seals are doing their job.
This kit is exactly lie the original bearings, easy install just like OEM.
Really great and very chip price... i dont want to clean it any more.. just replaced!!!
Good product and much more affordable over OEM parts. I used these on my 2004 CR250 and haven't had any problems and will purchase again in the future when they wear out.
Parts are good quality, go in easily and fit perfectly (providing you press them in as per specs). There is really no reason to not do this maintenance yourself using these parts. It's such a good feeling to know you did it, did it correctly and saved money in the process.
A full season with a lot of mud riding packed with a heavy coating of grease and they're still holding strong
