I'm in the middle of replacing bearings in my 2019 SB130. At least one of each bearing group was notchy possibly causing me to have problems getting proper sag out of my coil. I was getting the same 15% sag out of two different springs where a couple months ago I was getting anywhere from 40% to 30% depending on the spring.

During disassembly I noticed the lockrings that secure the rear triangle seatstay bearings were barely hand tight. The manual says these should be torqued to 20Nm. Had anybody else noticed under torqued lockrings when changing these bearings? If widespread, could it have contributed to the early complaints about a flexy rear end in both the SB130 & SB150?
