Default Suspension lube

Decided to lube the shafts on suspension today

The links on the shock / swingarm, very easy out, lube and in

The rod through the swingarm, a lot more punching and hammering - rusted







The bottom rod through the shock, a total different story

I think its rusted to such an extend, that I'm not getting it out, at all

Almost a tin of WD40 later, and I can turn the shaft, but it does not move at all

Might be rusted to the bearing shaft?







The lack of lubrication from the "stealer", is shocking

Mike Hopkins came to the "party" and replaced all bearings, bolts and seals on the suspension of my KLR
Lack of grease on the bolts the culprit apparently
According to him, the bearings does get greased but the robot that inserts the bolt into the bearings, does not grease the bolt itself
Trust and hope it’s all done correctly now
