Should there be any side to side play in the rear monoshock? I'm able to move the Brutale shock slightly side to side, almost like the play on an old steering wheel, if you know what I mean.

Anyone know?

The whole swingarm or just the shock itself?

The shock will turn because it's using heim joints on the top and bottom mounts if I remember correct. It may even move side to side just a little.

If you are moving the swingarm, that's bad and should be checked.

Not the swingarm. Just the shock. Yeah, it turns a little. And yeah, I was worried.

Thanks a bunch for replying. A little play at the Helm joints sounds reasonable--learn something new everyday.

Yeap, no biggie. Try adjusting the preload if you have the regular threaded collars! The shock turns all over the place. So it must have heim joints on both ends now that I think about it...
