How do I look after the pivot bearings?

Your bearings are maintenance free. They come greased from new. Avoid using a high pressure washer to clean your bike as this will remove the grease. Check the wear of the bearings every 6 months. Remove your rear wheel and rear shock and lift the swing arm up and down. If they feel rough then get a new pair!

Pivot bearing kits can be purchased direct from Orange via the components page.

Once you have the new bearings, you can set about changing out the old ones. Detailed instructions can be found for replacing the bearings on HorizHold (Gyro, Five, Patriot and 224) frames as well as Press Fit (322, 224-EVO and Alpine 160) frames.
