Ok, so i bought my cr last year and it was practically new. i took it all apart and greased everything with the grease that's called for in my factory manual and used quite a bit of grease too. Anyways, i rode the dunes for 3 days and everything seemed fine suspension wise. I took everything apart today for cleaning and regreasing. Everything was fine except the rear linkage bearing that joins the rear shock to the linkage. It was seized solid and rusted. The inner collar is scored so it needs to be replaced. A coworker told me this one would be dry and i thought no way because of how i greased it last year. Do you need to take these apart and grease them every couple of months? I rode all woods riding last year in a dry climate, probably 40-50 hours worth.
