Small slack in the upper shock mount


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I would like to ask you guys something happening on my bike. It's a 2022 T7 with 3000 Km.

When i place it on the center stand and move the wheel up and down, i can see that the upper shock mount has a small slack.  Do you know if this is normal in our bikes? O maybe it's a problem on mine? Thanks very much!!

So, assuming the bolt/nut is torqued to spec, the only other part that could cause problems is the ball joint in the shock body. I'm not normally a 'take it to the dealer' kind of guy, but I would take it back to the dealer. Warranty may apply here.

I think I have Yamaha disease...
