It's been 6 years since my last linkage-type rear suspension and I can't remember...is there supposed to be play in the upper shock mount? I can grab the reservoir and rotate the whole shock just a little bit. Also, when the bike's on a stand, I can push down on the back end, and there's noticeable vertical play at the upper shock bolt. On my KTM PDS shocks, this would mean either the upper or lower heim bearing was bad. Has does this from the beginning on my KX (has about 20 hours of use).
