Re: Greased the linkage - butter smooth now
The only one I have seen fail (and have helped repair on other bikes) is the item #3, ball stud. Even though this comes with dry, red loctite, they often work thier way loose. Once loose they are prone to snap at the threads. If you inspect these at every service interval, check for tightness and keep them lubed you will never have a problem. I always find one loose on my inspections and have even found the bell crank pivot bolt loose once.
