Hello dear reader!
My today's review will be dedicated to the consumable item for scooter.
Please do not confuse the oil seal and bushing, are two different things. I want to tell you about the silent engine will introduce with this brand and will tell you where to buy.
Before, I didn't even know what it is and whether you need to change it. As it turned out what you need. Last fall I noticed that control the scooter has become much harder, which did not exist. What is it like? That is, the wheel was taken to the side, and the rear drifts when irregularities in the road surface, one word to fall off the "horse" could at any moment.
Began to look for the cause, from what it can be? Wasn't looking for a long time, with staggering noticed that the bushings inside are worn and have gaps. Like a trifle, but management strongly influences.
Now tell about the model details, a little about installing them.
The photo shows the new bushings. This is not some complicated mechanisms or bearings as the seem at first glance. They consist of a steel housing, the inner space is filled with rubber in the center steel bushing. Appearance inspires that they are weighty, in fact, weigh only a few grams.
Anyway and the differences are to be found, each side as two drops of water. So you can install them by either party. The edge of the case, obratny at a certain angle for more convenient zapressovki.
Before buying, measure the old bushings stengele as bought through the Internet, when buying in the store you can take a sample of the original part.
My measurements may not be accurate, but approximate.
The width is 22 millimeters.
Diameter - 18 millimeters.
Inner diameter is 10 mm.
As they say seven times measure, once cut off. I'm going to ensure that it is necessary to measure several times and as accurately as possible in the absence of the sample.
THE COMPARISON WITH THE OLD SILENTBLOCS:
In advance before replacing the knocked out the old bushings, it's so damaged. Have used the materials at hand, anyone have a portable gas burner, I recommend her heated seat. So it will be much easier and safer to extract.
The comparison can be noted that the original quality of metal and rubber better that looks similar.
PREPARING TO REPLACE:
Bore holes are already prepared for "zapressovki" new parts. Before doing this removed all the dirt, burrs, which was the result not of careful withdrawal.
REPLACEMENT OF SILENT BLOCKS:
Sosnovka work has been done. To put in place had a little "talk", after half of the bushing goes in tight. Again with a gas burner this process will be easier, you can lubricate with petroleum jelly is somehow easier than trying to drive on a dry seal.
In the photo there are slight grooves, it is the result of a hammer. The quality of the new parts are worse than the original a little, I'll hope that they will last more than one year.
The trouble does not end, you need to insert the long bolt in its place that connects the frame and the engine. One can be done but not convenient. One "wisdom"says -" if long to suffer anything happens."
Once inserted the bolt, on the other hand screwed the nut. This is shown in the photo, I have a nut welling from the generator.
After the replacement of silent blocks data management dynamics became normal. Did not pull the steering wheel, stopped to throw the rear wheel with bumps. My scooter was like new.
As you can see silent blocks influence on management, it is not necessary to delay, suggest to rectify the fault as it is detected.
Where to buy?
At the moment it is hard to find in the store, in the store is, but not all, on Aliexpress, the choice is wide - here is what I purchased.
The quality is not bad, better than the original just will not. How long will last, only time will tell, while I'm still good.
Thanks for watching!
