Suspension linkage refurb

One of the essential items left on the list to refurb is the rear suspension linkage to sort out geometry before the hub motor arrives. With the extra torque I need to ensure the back is tight and secure; new bushes, seals, and covers all around. Finding the parts was a struggle. Many parts were discontinued so the a search for NOS (New Old Stock) was necessary. Only had to buy a couple of none OEM part (thrust cover & M12/12.9 grade steel bolt) all others were original Yamaha parts. A session with bushes and the the garage vice and all was good.
