How to stop the squeak squeak.
By now all of us that even touch the 660 know the rear shock likes to squeak. Ive come up with a solution and here's what i did.
1. Remove the rear shock, the squeak comes from the top bearing.
A. It has two seals one on each side, then two snap rings holding the bearing in place.
2. Once you have the bearing out drill a small hole in it ( i cant remember the size i used) to allow grease in.
A. A carbide bit must be used since this is very hard, you will snap high speed steel bits all day long.
3. Next take the shock and drill a small hole to where the bearing is so grease can get to it. After you have the small hole drilled, drill another large enough and only the depth you need to tap it for a grease cert.
4. Clean install, grease then enjoy riding without the dreaded squeak squeak squeak. Place the cert in a position that allows you to access it easily without removing much.
Ive abused the heck out of this setup for 2.5 years now for those whom are worried about strength and reliability, and have had NO issues or hair line cracks.
