So here is the thing about Pivot Works bearings. THEY COME WITH A LIFETIME GUARANTEE!!!! what else needs to be said? The only thing to look for is that you need to make sure that you mic your old bearings because the lower shock bearing on an 01' cr 250 has the same o.d. as the linkage but i.d. is smaller so don't be like me and press in a fresh bearing just to turn around and press it back out and waste it. other than that, just stick them in the freezer over night get a torch and a bench vise some sockets and in about 30-45 min. you will have the SMOOTHEST action money can buy.

easy installation, overall good product
Good kit. Comes with everything needed to replace all linkage bearings bushings and seals. Fast shipping
E z instal with a vice and large socket
High quality, easy to install.
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.
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.
