My Orange Five frame arrived today (2nd hand). I want to replace the shock, so I removed the shock mount bolts (they were very very tight) with 2 allen keys.
I then photographed the shock, and reinstalled it into the shock mounts.
I have noticed however, that since I've put the shock back there is slight play in the shock mount bolts when I move the swingarm - this definitely did not happen 10 minutes before.
I doubt that the bushings would just give up so randomly, so could it be that the shock mount bolts weren't tight enough, or do I need to replace the bushings?
I tightened the shock mount bolts as tight as I could with two allen keys as my ratchet seems to have broken.
Thanks for any input.
