So I take my wheels to the local dealer for tire replacements etc...their prices are surprisingly good on loose tire replacements and seem to be normal for other work. I got a quote for doing my rear linkage service, and it was about $280. I know my bike is a 15 with "only" 27k on it, but as some of you saw, I rode through Tropical Storm Ida. I noticed the other day that when I sat on the bike before a ride, the rear sounded a little "creaky". It rides completely fine, but I don't want to damage anything by ignoring what I heard. I used some teflon spray that I use on pianos in all the spots i could see down there for a temporary fix....but it's not a substitute for grease which I suspect might be lacking due to my extended storm run. No worries on the teflon lube, its not a penetrating agent like WD or PB Breaker...its just dry lube....but it wont last through the elements i'm sure. The Linkage service looks like a pain in the d**k for lack of a better phrase. Is it worth paying someone $280? I have a the center stand, and I have a track stand for the front...as well as a wooden block that can fit under the headers...but thats all for jacks.
