Just talked to the lbs to see about ordering a bushing kit for my 99' FSR XCPro. They are available (special order) at $40.00. Anyone found them cheaper or know anywhere that would have them in stock? Thanks in advance.
I replaced the bushings on my '99 stumpy FSR XC Comp this summer. Picked up the bushing kit at my local bike shop for $25. They had it in stock. Label on package said it was only for '00 models though, but lbs called specialized and verified that it would work on the '99. It did. Replacing the bushings helped out alot. I also replaced the bottom bearings on the chainstay, although this may not have been necessary as they seemed to still be in good shape. (got them at a local bearing warehouse) Didn't realize how worn they had become. The kit does not include shock bushings though. The shock area is still a major source of "slop" on my bike.
