    Default Rear suspension dog bone

    Hi guys
    Is it normal to have a bit of play in the rear dog bone?
    I've just replaced the bearings etc as they were quite badly worn but there is still a small amount of play

    Where is the play? Side to side, between the triangles and the dog bone? The bolt that goes thru the bearings? Describe your situation better.

    The play is in the rear most bearing of the doggie bone where it bolts through the triangle. With the bike on the centre stand it can be felt when lifting the swinging arm up and down , it's only a small amount compared to what it was , I'm just surprised it's there as it's all been replaced
